i am new to linux as well but from the books ive been reading and the trial and error ive donw. It seems that to install things in linux it need to be done in the terminal... i use suse 9.0 . i installed crossover yesterday. you just download the file RPM or GZ or whatever. and decompress it and install it via command line

Most linux distro websites have a small tutorial for installing programs. For instance here is slackware's website for installing packages : http://slackware.com/config/packages.php
