I'm a total LINUX NOOB! I downloaded LANChat-1.1.0.tar.gz, extracted it and "Walah!!!".... I DON'T WHAT NEXT (sigh).

Here's the file content:
BUGS COPYING lanchat.lsm lc_main.c README TODO
ChangeLog lanchat.h lc_funcs.c Makefile ROUTING

By the way, I need this LANChat to synchronize w/ the other Windows PCs on our network.
Help!

App is finally running. Thanks raja.genupula!

1. Opened README (duh!)
2. Installed ncurses
3. Opened TERMINAL and went to LANChat directory
4. type 'make'
5. a file named 'LANChat' appeared (took me a while here also...)
6. typed ./LANChat

Again, thanks dude! and everyone!!!
