    in linux copy the .tar.gz file to somware like /usr/src and then un-tar it with [code]tar -xzvf /usr/src/412.tar.gz

    After that it should create a new directory within /usr/src named 412, go in there and read the INSTALL and README files to learn how to install. The tutorial http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-19957.html should be usfull to read as well.
