How do you install a program?

I have installed Red Hat Linux 6.1 on a standalone PC with the ff RPM installed:
However, when I put the SAP demo Cd in and clicked install, I get
the ff message: "Currently there is no R3SETUP connected to this
wizard. Please start R3SETUP on your target machine with the ff options: -glocalhost.localdomain:3175" How do is start R3SETUP with the above given info in Linux? By the way R3SETUP is on the SAP program cd under directory /mnt/cdrom/UNIX/LINUX_32. When I click it nothing happens.

Please help! I am new to Linux and used to windows where I simply click install or setup and I'm home free.

Well, this ain't windows, you'll have to use the command line for this little adventure. What you should do is, from a command prompt type 'cd /mnt/cdrom/UNIX/LINUX_32/' then once you are in that directory type ". ./R3SETUP" (you need the first period to tell the shell to source the file and the ./R3SETUP means the file relative to your current path). This should start the program. Get used to using the command line and feel the freedom of open source. Bill can't MAKE you use the poin-n-click-n-don't learn sh*t method here.

And don't forget to
