Go to the Opera website, and download the latest version.
http://www.opera.com/browser/download/

One of the options is getting it for the "Other" distro listed, in RPM format. After it's downloaded, double-click it in your file manager. Should prompt you for a root password, so enter it.

RPM format is not much use for Puppy! Are you sure Opera's not available as a PET? And do you have Lucid Puppy? If so, you can use the Ubuntu repository, which should have it.

PuppyLinux: Opera - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Opera

Or you use the Ubuntu method:
