tar -jxvf filename.tar.bz2
is the command to uncompress the file
and then go into the uncompressed folder it will make, and read the
INSTALL and/or README file, and install it ..

That generally means that a makefile wasn't created. Possible reasons maybe

1) ./configure threw up an error. check to see that first
2) maybe you have a corrupt version of the source, you may want to download the source again.

read the INSTALL file to see if anything needs to be specifically done.

PS: if that dosn't work, mail me at srichand AT linux dot net.
