Installing software in RH


Ok, I am completely ignorant. How do I install a program (application) in Linux. Is compiling the same thing? I have RH 8 that I have as a dual boot with WIN XP. I am happy with what I see so far but I cant figure out how to install eboard (a chess interface)

Please help

right, not really a double post, but close enough in my book, so please reply to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=35007 and not this thread. thanks.

and sirlostalot, i can assure you that you will not benefit from adding things like "HELP!!" to your threads, we know you are here for help, some people even find it annoying and may well ignore your posts.
