Bodhi Linux is actually an operating system and not a program.
Is the link below what you are referring to "internet scrabble clue"?

Were you running it on Bodhi Linux and it stopped functioning? More details on what happened. The link indicates that if you have a previous version you need to uninstall it before trying to install again.

Assuming you're talking about a tarball (a file ending in tar.gz) then open a terminal and use this command:
tar zxvf <name of file>.tar.gz
If it's a bz2 file then type
tar jxvf <name of file>.bz2
Oh, and in the future please use a more descriptive title than "please, help"
