but leaving out the .bz2 file. (all the files are seperate when extracted)

one thing to do was to install beryl, so i extracted the files using the 'Extract' option form the right click menu from mandriva, now i thought it would install but apprently because i am a big NEEWBIE i dont know what to do next, i looked the the installation procedures at that website and it was all a load of jiberish to me, i didnt know what root meant etc.

so can someone out their be kind enough to help me out ASAP PLEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEE.
