Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm fairly new to linux myself, but I think I can help you out. After the initial command (tar xzvf filename.tar.gz) a folder by the name of msn or amsn is created. You can go into that directory and type in ./amsn or you can go to run and type in amsn.
When I downloaded it it came has a rpm file.Double click the icon for the download to do the install.Now during the install it might tell you the signature is wrong but tell it yes to install anyway.Once its installed it will make a file called msn basically in the folder your download icon is in. Then click the big K for the k menu assuming your using KDE and click the run command and type /home/lynn/Download/msn/amsn. But in your case put in your name and the path to the amsn inside the msn folder.Hope that helps I'm a newbie so Good Luck
