About VMWare and Gromacs

I was given a title "Modelling of Liposomes for drug delivery system" as my final year project. Hence, my supervisor introduces Linux to us which we are not familiar with at all as we are Windows user. Anyway, he gave us a brief tutorial on VMWare and the commands to install gromacs. I successfully installed VMWare, however, Im stucked here now. Where am I supposed to type in the commands? Is it at the terminal? When Im at the terminal, I see this: [root@localhost~]# Am I at the right track? I jotted down the commands. It's as follows:

cd Desktop/
1s [Is it 1(one)s/l(L)s/I(i)s?]
cd xmgrace
cd xmgrace
cd grace-5.1.22/
make install

I double check with my friend, and she gave me a totally different command instead:

cd desktop
cd gromacs
cd fftw-3.2.1
make install
cd gromacs-4.0.5

Any idea which is the right one? When i try installing the commands at terminal, I receive this msg "bash: Is: command not found"

Im very confused and not sure how else to proceed. Do advise. Thank you very very much in advance
