    What format is the package in?

    If its in tar.gz, just tar xvzf name-of-package.tar.gz, cd into the new directory and do this: ./configure && make && su -c "make install" and everything should be fine. You also have to alter your xinitrc file, but ask about that if you get problems.

    If its in rpm, do this: rpm -Uvh package.rpm

    Also, I recomend http://linux-newbie.sunsite.dk/ as reading material. Its good stuff

    Good luck!

    type this
    Code:
    cd /path/to/downlaoded/file
    rpm -Uvh enlightenment-version.rpm
    replace the version with the rest of the file name.
