how to install apollon??


i want to install apollon, however i have a few questions before starting the process

im running redhat 9, i have read several threads regarding apollon but have yet to find one that clearly explains step by step how to install apollon. im a newbie and learning, so bare with me

i went to apollon's site and they have all in one package that im thinking about downloading
here are my questions
should i create a directory to download apollon ? or can i place i on my home directory?

most threads i read mentioned installing an gft file first(forgive me if mispelled it), if thats the case where do i get that file?

i would like a step by step as far as which files to get, which ones to install first, where to place them, what comands to run, etc

thanks in advance

thanks heema, tried what you said, but did not work
i know the tar.gz package in the hom/user directory, so i tried cd /home/user
then
./apollon and i get this
bash: ./apollon: No such file or directory
any ideas??

./apollon

and u can do :
updatedb
locate apollon

BTW updatedb updates the slocate database so when u type locate <file> it shows u where it is instantly
