Trouble installing Vega Strike

I'm having trouble installing Vega Strike on my Mandriva box.

I got it from a magazine which gave instructions on how to install the game which were-

su /mnt/cdrom/Games/VegaStrike/vegastrike-0.4.3.base.bz2

I tried that command and it said that it was neither a file or a directory, can somone help me with this as I have heard good thing about this game and I would really like to install it.
