./configure error on Red Hat 9

I am trying to compile the new iFolder code from novell and whenever I type ./configure I get the following error:

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

I have looked all of the internet and have seen people asking the same kind of question, but never a response. I have all of the the latest autmake, autoconf, etc. rpms.

Was it source code or some install code?
Did you cd to the extracted folder?
Did you read the README and INSTALL files in that folder?
Was the first step specified in the INSTALL file the ./configure command?

Thanks for the links. I actually realized that there was another .sh file that needed to be run before ./configure would work. Thanks again for the response.
