How are binary program files placed into a directory for installation?
How are programs placed in a directory for installation? For example, I wanted to install Java so I could use the jbidwatcher sniper program. Everytime I download the Java program I get the file jre-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin
Does this type of file require bulding? I am just starting to use Linux and I have no idea how to install new programs outside the Xandros Network. I did try to use Xandros Network to install, but it said this was an invalid format and could only use rpm or deb file formats.
