don't really follow what you don't understand. in order to run whatever script you are trying to run you need to create a group called "clamav" which is exactly hwat the command they give you is for.

What do you mean you are running Linux 4? Are you using Slackware or not?

What it's telling you is as root, to run the command given, so start a terminal session if you are in grapical mode, the n type

su -
<root's password in response to prompt>
groupadd -g 210 clamav

Then keep doing what you were doing
