well #3 should be "./cdroot/autorun" and you should be in the directory that the extracted folder "cdroot" is in. or cd (change directory) to cdroot and then run
"./autorun". You have to include the "./" and you have to be in the directory where it is.

my mistake, I was looking at the first five steps for "Unified linux install".
I see what you mean now. It should work the same way as the "./" is just to say "in this directory" basically. Make sure your in the directory where the folder cdroot is or type the complete path like /home/name/Desktop/cdroot/autorun if it's on the desktop.
