I am slightly new to Ubuntu 10.10 . Answered

And I want to install the TORCS racing game and the Rosegarden sound software can anyone give me a step by step way to download and install all of the packages (needless to say I am incapable of doing this because I do not have much computer know how).

Just open the Synaptic Package Manager, enter your password and then scroll down to Rosegarden and select it. Then scroll to torcs and select it. Click "Apply" and the programs and any necessary dependencies will be downloaded and you can install them directly.

whenever I try to open the package manager it says there are no packages I also have tried opening my Ubuntu software center and that will not even open up a window

What Burf said should work, but if Synaptic shows no packages you may want to run (In a terminal - Applications>>Accessories>>Terminal) sudo apt-get update

This should update the list of packages Ubuntu detects.
