Need help installing First Class Client on Puppy


http://www.firstclass.com/ClientDown...uxDownloadPage

so i'm trying to install the Linux Generic version. and i'm not sure how to do it since it's binary tarball. i'm assuming you can't just extract it ? (did that for firefox and it worked just fine)

why would you assume you can't extract it? works fine for me:

Code:
[root@kermit ~]# tar jxvf fcc-8.101-1-Linux.i686.tar.bz2 
opt/firstclass/
opt/firstclass/download/
opt/firstclass/fcc.rez
opt/firstclass/fcapps
opt/firstclass/settings/
opt/firstclass/settings/home.fc
opt/firstclass/plugins/
opt/firstclass/fcc
opt/firstclass/fcfonts
opt/firstclass/fcp/
opt/firstclass/fcp/High-Speed Internet.FCP
opt/firstclass/fcp/Local Network.FCP
opt/firstclass/fcp/Dialup Internet.FCP
opt/firstclass/fcp/Internet.FCP
opt/firstclass/firstclass.png
opt/firstclass/Images/
opt/firstclass/fcctemp/
etc...
so their plan is largely that you simply extract it to / and things should go in the right place. YMMV of course...

it's supposed to bring up a login field, it's an email client that my school uses. so i'm trying to get it on linux so i don't have to go back to windows often.
