    download the source tarball (should end with .tar.gz .tar.bz2 .tgz or .tbz2)
    unpack it with
    Code:
    tar xzvf <filename>
    for a tar.gz or .tgz..
    Code:
    tar xjvf <filename>
    for a .tar.bz2 or .tbz2

    read INSTALL and README files that came with the source. the instructions for compiling/installing will be in the file INSTALL. most of the time all you'll have to do is:
    Code:
    ./configure && make
    su
    make install
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
