Best approach is setting up livna /rpmfusion repository and install it like you would install any of the other packages.

To install manually, extract the tar.gz, cd into the extracted folder and run
./configure (if this fails, it means you first need to install one or more other packages - a good reason to use livna/rpmfusion instead)
./make
as root: ./make install
(the extracted folder may contain a README or some such that offers more details on this process).

Have you got an internet connection? If so, I recommend using the livna/rpmfusion repository (which has other interesting software packages such as video card drives, multimedia codecs, etc.).
