take alook at the readme or install page and see what they say, everyone is different.

make is what you would probably use but read the readme and installs first!!!

usually it will be something like:

make install

and if your using rpm based it will be something like this:

rpm -i /filename
rpm -ivh /filename

but bob is right. each program might be slightly different from others.. so i would suggest always reading the readme and install files.
