Keep in mind that your homework is not urgent to us so please use a better subject. Have you tried these commands:
Code:
tar -zxvf SDL-1.2.6.tar.gz
cd SDL-1.2.6
./configure
make
sudo make install
You may have to modify this for your location...

You need to give a lot more information--eg what distribution did you download.

Also, tell us more about the assignment you were given.
