Problems installing Corel WordPerfect

I am running Red Hat 7.1
I purchased Corel WordPerfect 8 on a CD.
The instructions tell you to copy certain files to your hard drive, then unzip and untar them. Then the instructions tell you to run a newly created Runme script.

So, I run Runme. Following this, I get questions, each of which I answer.
The last thing that happens is I am asked for an installation directory. I haven't a clue as to what I am being asked or how to answer it. So, I give the answer of "/home/corel" (where I copied the files before I unzipped and untarred them). And, of course, I flunked. So I now have unzipped and untarred files in /home/corel, but there isn't any evidence of an executable file.

Where do I go from here?
