Don't try to double click the .jar file, that will only extract it's contents (it's basically a .zip archive).

Instead follow the instructions they have at the Minecraft web site, and either right-click the file and choose to execute it with Java, or start it from a command line with "java -Xmx1024M -Xms512M -cp Minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame".

(in the long run you'd probably want to create a shell script to execute that command, and then make a menu launcher that points to that script)
