Create a directory somewhere, for your code. Then go into netbeans and click ''mount filesystem''. There you have the directory, you can then add files to it using File>New.

If you create a new subfolder in this filesystem, any files you put in there must belong to a package of that subfolder''s name.

If you''re new to Java, Netbeans will definitely put you off programming in Java. Its not really newbie friendly, so I think you should try something else.

You mention that you''ve got the SDK. That''s great, and what you need now is a good code editor. Take a look at JCreator as it has a free version that is very functional and should be more like Windows apps that you''re used to.

Try learning with that, and once you''re comfortable with Java, you can then use bloated IDEs like Netbeans/Eclipse/JBuilder/etc.
