How do I compile packages for use in Suse?

I have used several distros(Debian, Mandrake,FC3) and now I am using "Novell Desktop powered by SuSe". Many times, the installation instructions tell me to compile it and install. Can someone please tell me about the different ways to install software, particularly in SuSE.

Thank you very much,

Good luck!
