hi all,
I've been using Linux for a while but have always installed s/w using the GUI.

now I want to install some image stacking s/w called Starstax but this is not in the repo but you have to download a .tgz file.

here's the download\install instructions: http://www.markus-enzweiler.de/StarS....html#download

is there a "correct" way to do this? should I download the file and run a terminal command to unzip? also should I unzip to a specific location?

thanks for any help!
