    I have not figured out how to install tar. files in linux yet.
    I would like to install the mplayer in suse 9.3 I have downloaded the mplayer and the essential codec for it. Any help would be great.

    I am not that familiar with the terminal commands in linux at all.

    I would start with
    tar -xvf your_file_name.tar
    which will extract the content in the current directory. From then read the INSTALL/README file since instructions depend on many things (version, permissions, system, ...)

    Are you using a GUI w/ SuSE or are you trying to use command line only? If you are indeed using a GUI you could install it probably rather simple via YaST. If you are indeed trying to keep command line only then I would go with what ejn74 said.

    I do not now enough to use the command line. I use the GUI. So Yast will install it?
