How on earth do you install a program on SUSE Linux? I have dowloaded the program SNORT and I have no earthly idea how to install it. I am not at all familiar with Linux and when I open the folder I downloaded, I see no executable files. The filename of the file I downloaded is snort-2.6.1.tar.gz

Any answers as to how I might accomplish the installations of this would be greatly appriciated.
How then, do you compile the source code into a .rpm?
