unixfreak -- a quick search on your previous ~400 posts here reveals that you have had extensive exposure to Linux using multiple distros, and therefore I'm skeptical that the topic of software installation is an unfamiliar one to you.
However, if installing software truly is unknown to you then reading this page
will provide you with a useful overview. As you will see, all that you need to do to install a package is to untar it, then cd to the new directory that gets created, run ./configure, make, and make install.
There are many other helpful online resources that discuss software installation under Linux; all you need to do is spend some time reading them. -- J.W.
