well, what do you need? are you installing gift from source or from rpm if its from source then untar the file tar -zxvf file if it ends in .tgz or tar.gz or tar -xvjpf file if it ends in .bz2 then enter the directory and read the readme file which should give directions on installing, after youve done that please post more specific questions if you need more help

The generally accepted practice is to google for info, try to do what you're trying to do, google on your problems, and then bring unresolved problems here. It is quite impossible to give totally general advice.
