i'd asume it's a self extracting script, so just run it.

chmod +x blah.gz.sh
./blah.gz.sh

.sh is a shell script, .gz is a gzipped file, so it sounds like a self extracting package
Read any README file or INSTALL which may have come with it.
Open a console/terminal in the directory it's in and run sh ./filename.gz.sh I think

Edit: We have to stop meeting like this, acid

Hmm, would it be possible for him to post the shell script here acid, or is it too attached to the file? Even via hexeditor?

Did you forget to download a setup.sh script that should have come with it, or should that script be in the file itself? Integrity checked out ok...
