I Can't Install Anything!!!

I am a Newbie. I am experiencing problems with installing these tar files that can help me play DVD's on my Linux Fedora2 system. I attempted all of the suggestions listed here to no avail. Maybe someone needs to explain it to me as ifr I were a 3 year old. It is my understanding according to this site
that I need to install several packages. I can't get any to install. I'm quite sure that it is something simple that my DOS/Windows mind is just not thinking of. I have tried several times to install other things and it seems so far that if it doesn't install automatically with the LauchUp2date then I can't get it installed? I don't believe I could have installed the Linux had it not came on CD's with the book the book that I bought for $50, which obviously isn't helping much. PLEASE HELP!!! Break me in, give me the missing Key that I am not doing, anything; but PLEASE HELP!!!
