A source rpm is installed the same way as an ordinary rpm but it does not show up in the rpm database (since its just source code). If you install a source rpm, its really of no use, unless you intend to rebuild it or make changes to the contents and then build an rpm. Most people don't have to install source rpms, since you can build an rpm from a source package without installing it. rpm.org is a good resource if you need to find out more about rpm and source rpm.

You may want to untar it and see if there is a readme in there. That usually tells you how to install it. May help.
