There is a heckuva difference between .rpm packages and source packages such as one that ends with .bz.

Assuming you have Fedora successfully installed, you are now ready to do a little studying. Linux ain't Windows. You can't just close your eyes and double click. Read about 'yum', and here's a tutorial on compiling from source.
