For the tar files, you untar them with a command like tar -xvf tarfilename.
Then you go into the newly created directory and compile the program using
./configure
make
(su to root)
make install


Frankly, what you need most is to start googling and reading some basic Linux tutorials.

waqaskool:

read the link i posted you and that tells you how. Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list to use the cd's rather then the internet.

Then download the debian cd's for sarge or etch which ever you use.

boot into debian apt-get package name, install the package the link tells you it will pop out the cd draw, pop the disk in then do as the rest of the link i posted says.

Once thats all doen change the /etc/apt/sources.list file to use the repos again instead of cd's and you will be away.

open up synaptic edit>fix broken packages

this will then download all the packages it says above that are missing (if they are available). If some are not then it will uninstall cedega as cedega cannot be instll properly.

FWIW SuSE's footprint can be under 1GB or over 5GB - it is all up to you as you select the packages at install time. A distribution which gives you options != bloat

Regarding multimedia

Not playing WMV or other proprietary formats is not the fault of SuSE/Novell - they are avoiding patent disputes while maintaining a largely free/OSS distribution, leaving you free to post copies on bittorrent or give DVDs to friends and coworkers. Most distributions won't do MP3, DVD, WMV, and other codecs out of the box, but adding that capability is a simple matter for nearly every distribution.
