Tarball installation, how?
After having installed Linux Suse a week ago, I still feel like a rookie. :? I was trying to install the following software program,
thunderbird-1.0.2.tar.gz (A dreaded tarball).
Can anyone give me a detailed explanation on the exact procedure used to decompress and properly install a tarball file program? I'm not exactly that good at using Linux code, so please explain clearly.
I did luck out and managed to get an RPM file program to install, but I should still know how to do the tarball method. Thanks.

I typed what you said in the terminal command line and it didn't do anything. I downloaded the file and it's located in the /tmp file. I wouldn't know about compiling as I not even that far yet. :-)
