you could search for an rpm file, if it exists, it may be simpler than compiling from source.
good luck.

if this

Quote:
[root prompt]# tar xzf peng1.0a01.tar.gz
is the line your refering to. have you downloaded the file? if so, where? you'll need to cd (change directory) to the location of the file, then issue the commands.
good luck.
