Thank you, really

It's ok man ...way back in the day... it all seemed like greek to me when I 1st went through this.

NO. You don't try to convert them. Just download them.
Easier is :
1- I suggest using your computer to quickly download the pertinent files from the specific diablo turbo page (and remember do not bother with the lower sections concerning obsolete or sources) files and bits you download...then you can save a copy of all those files ...
2- then create a new folder ....name it "dt"

3- put all the files in it....

4- then simply place the "dt" folder (transfer to n800.. that is) on the EXTERNAL sd card.

5- then start x terminal...type sudo gainroot ...follow EXACTLY the instructions for diablo turbo installation...from there.

THE PROCESS USING X TERMINAL RECOGNIZES ALL THOSE FILE EXTENSIONS AND UTILIZES THEM ACCORDINGLY.

DON'T JUST RANDOMLY TRY TO OPEN FILES. USE THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED....
