yo. I saw your distress signal for help. I'm new to linux too. I'm using the ubuntu 9.04 v.. One thing you'll learn about linux is that it isn't intuitive, and that's why people in general prefer windows. What I've slowly discovered is that linux people are like a big ol' family; we always try to help each other out. So, I'm gonna try and help you, and I want you to pay it forward and try and help another linux guy sometime soon.
Getting down to business, the file that you want to d.l. is a "tarball" and that basically means that it is in a zipped format similar to a zipped file in windows. In order to open it up, you will need an app similar to winzip, right? U can find the rest here.
