If you follow the first to steps in the post Chris made:

Do an "ls" command to see what is in the directory.
Most projects include a README or INSTALL file in their packages. Open
that file (if there is one), and look for the "Installing" heading.
Following the directions there is the best way to go.
I guess the best thing Linux taught me is to actually READ the README
file and I would suggest anyone else try that too
