this has not much to do with programming...

check on how to get programs with linux.
Go to your package manager (synaptic, etc), search for gfortran and select it for install. If you don't find it over there then you google for it and follow the installing instructions, but more than probably, it's on the packages of your distro.
sudo apt-get install gfortran

.. And now Suse ..
Please open a terminal and do the commands
1) su
2) zypper se fortran
.. to do a search.
.. Suse 11 will reply ..
  | gcc-fortran   | The system GNU Fortran Compiler       
  | gcc43-fortran | The GNU Fortran Compiler and Support Files
  | libgfortran43 | The GNU Fortran Compiler Runtime Library
.. where gcc-fortran provides '/usr/bin/gfortran'

3) zypper in gcc-fortran
.. which will download and install the Suse gfortran packages.

The package manager "Add / Remove Software" can also be used
for package install.

Alternatively 'yast' followed by either 'software management' or 'install and remove software' 9depending on which version of yast) and a search on 'fortran' should reveal a couple of fortran options and a couple of libraries; the libraries will be pulled in automagically, as required, if you select the appropriate fortran. Oh, and fortran2c, which sounds useful, but maybe not to you.

In this, 'where' isn't exactly the most useful question; with the repositories set up sensibly the answer to 'how' seems to be 'the same way as usual' and you don't need to care about 'where'.
