Grab the file that ends with .tar.bz2 (this is called a bzipped tarball) and then follow one of the hundreds of sets of install instructions you'll find from doing a search on this site.

Good Luck!

Cool

How's about 192 links?

The skinny:
tar xvjf filename.tar.bz2
cd filename
./configure
make
make install

For the fat/long version, check out those links
