What's the error?  Which GUI environment (or are you using command line?)
are you using?  Next time be more specific.

What exactly are you trying to install from cd?  If you have the source,
there may be a GUI utility to untar & install, but I usually use the
command line to:

tar ztvf blah.tar.gz
make install

If you have rpm's then you can use kpackage if you have that installed, or
use rpm from the command line: rpm -Uvh blah.rpm

You should really go to www.linuxdocs.org and read some of the guides,
such as the Admin Guide.
