This kinda questions has been asked alot, and the steps are very generic even though it's a different program, either search here on installing rpm's, or go to the site where you downloaded the file from and they will have instructions there...

A tip on the realplayer file:

rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2_rpm

You will need to rename it to:

rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.rpm

Before installing it with rpm.

God people he can click on it in KDE or Gnome, and it will ask for a root password, then you can select the file, click install, & that is it. No wonder people think linux is hard no one tells them the easy why to do something.
