    after downloading the tarball, you normally unzip it ("tar zxvf <file>"), then "cd <directory>" to the newly created directory, then run "make" then "make install" from there.

    what program?

    libssl is a shared libary which allows other programs on your PC to make use of ssl functions?

    how do i get openssh to run, the reason i got zlib and openssl is because they are need to run openssh.

    to start the ssh daemon so other people can SSH to your machine, execute "sshd &". The server will begin listening on port 22.
