    It would help if you let us know what distro of linux.

    It probably is a tar/zipped archive ie foo.tgz , with almost all software and such you will need to uncompress it ie tar xvfz foo.tgz then go into the directory created and read the file called install, readme or something obvious like that. Then follow the instructions given, something like this probably ./configure && make && make install (the install will need to be done as root for most things ) just follow the instructions and if something goes wrong try again, as the world won't end and you will learn something
