You can either:

1. Double click the avast4workstation-x.x.x-x.i586.rpm file which should launch your package manager.

or

2. Go to the location where you have saved the file, press F4 this will open a console window, type: su press enter then input your root password and press enter. Now type: rpm -ivh avast4workstation-x.x.x-x.i586.rpm then press enter.
