    Unzip and extract the tarbundle:

    Code:
    tar -zxvf <tarfile>
    Go in to the new directory&#58;
    cd <newdirname>
    Read the README or INSTALL file
    
    To compile and install, just execute&#58;
    
    ./configure
    make
    make test
    make install

    When you open a terminal like xterm,gnome-terminal you will see a prompt like this:[root@localhost root]# thats called a prompt and everything that you do in the terminal calls the commandline, like dos in MS.
