you should move it onto the harddrive or you could give a location to unpack it, but once you get it unpacked read the files inside for info on installing it.

It really does not matter where you unpack it but I like to put all mine in a folder that I use for files like that.

if it's *.tar.gz you will need to unpack it like this

cd /location/to/unpack/in

tar zxvf /path/to/filename

Then you should have a folder that you can checkout. Be sure to read everything before you attempt to install it. Look for README or INSTALL files.
