I am new to Linux...
This question is so basic... assumed it is common knowledge.
I am reading books and tutorials and cannot find the answer
But I am trying for the last 6 hours

I am trying to install some software from a CD,

The file install_tools is a script file

root@dan-HP-Vectra:/home/dan# apt-get install /media/EmbeddedLinux/install_tools
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
