ok. your RPM's you want to install are in /home/user/download's/ so this is what you want to do:

su -
cd /home/user/download's
rpm -ivh blah.rpm

 

another thing you could try to do is installing APT. Apt is a program that will help you to EASILY install programs and keep your system up to date.

oops, i forgot to add this:

 

As far as installing gziped archives, do the following....

 

tar -xvfz program.version1.3-fdr.tar.gz
cd program_name
less README
less INSTALL
./configure --help

 

configure options usually look like --enable-blah --disable-blah --with-something

the options vary depending on the program you are trying to install, and many programs require you have other things installed first.

 

good luck :D

 

ps: just a tip - the TAB key is your friend. when typing out /directory/structures or file.names.conf the TAB key will auto-complete file/directory names for you. :)

apt-get update && apt-get install synaptic
