Simple installation: having some trouble

I tried installing this program at, and I've been having trouble getting it set up. I'm running Fedora Core 1. If anyone can point me to some instructions for installing and running something like this, or if anyone can outline the steps, it would be very much appreciated. I realize that downloading and installing something like this should be relatively simple, but I don't have my books on me, and I've been screwing up some part of the process involved in getting it running.

Download the file...
# tar xzf avida-src-2.2.2.tar.gz
# cd avida[tab]
# less README
# less INSTALL
..and unless the README or INSTALL tells you different:
# ./configure
# make
# make install

This is a general recipe for installing from source...
