Unpack the second package with the command " tar zxvf packagename.tar.gz " change directory to the program, read the " README " and if it exists the " INSTALL " files.

Here's what i did when i installed amsn (i'm new to this too)

went to http://www.tcl.tk/software/tcltk/downloadnow84.html to get the packages. to unpack them you can use the command that mrhyde gave you.

After they are unpacked, they both work the same way. Go into the "unix" folder (this is where you have to install from) and do the commands

./configure
make
make install

and this should do it for you. (the commands are the same for both)

now to run amsn. once you have unpackaged amsn there is no need to "install" it.

/.amsn should work.

let me know if you have any troubles with this.

RHL 9 comes with TCL/TK standard. Have you tried to install them from binary packages? RHL 9 has a tool for installing packages called "rehat-config-packages" It's easy to use.
