well i can help you with that. after you extract the .tar.gz file, you will get a folder with the same name (minus the .tar.gz part that is). bust out a terminal and cd into that directory. for some reason, the people who made this prog didn't make the configure file with executable rights so you hafta do that yourself, no worries just do this.
$ chmod a+x configure
that makes it executable, now:
this will configure it to your system, then (for this app most have you do 'make' first) do:
(to become root)
$ make install
and that should do it for ya! tell me if it works for you, i can't get mine to install :P
