INSTALLING OO0 3.1.0 tar.gz on a flash drive


My OS is Mandriva 2009,not installed by me & therefore I am not skilled at installing tar.gz.in fact completely baffled.
I downloaded the file:
OO0 3.1.0_Linux Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.tar.gaz
to the desktop,then copied it to a flash drive.
Question - how to install OO0 on the flash drive - I want to take it to a small (non Linux) Computer grp to be able to show OO0

In which case you don't want the tar.gz version if you are going to take it to a non-linux PC. Download the binary files for the destination PC, whether it be Mac or Windows.
