Angry Tarball unzipped. How do I install now?????????

This is a total 'newb-written-all-over-it-question' but here goes. I am happy to say that I have successfully unzipped my 1st tarball! Yay! Now....what the heck do I enter at the command prompt to get this software to install? I tried using the instrux at: http://linux.about.com/od/linux101/l/blnewbie3_5_1.htm all to no avail. PLEASE HELP A NEWB! (should be a national holiday)

here is the directory everything is unzipped into:

Quote:
[username@localhost nvu-0.60]$ ls -aF
./ libgtkxtbin.so* libxlibrgb.so* regchrome*
../ libmozjs.so* libxpcom_compat.so* regxpcom*
bloaturls.txt libnspr4.so* libxpcom.so* res/
chrome/ libnss3.so* libxpistub.so* run-mozilla.sh*
components/ libnssckbi.so* mangle* shlibsign*
defaults/ libplc4.so* mozilla-xremote-client* TestGtkEmbed*
elf-dynstr-gc* libplds4.so* nsinstall* xpcshell*
greprefs/ libsmime3.so* nvu* xpicleanup*
icons/ libsoftokn3.chk nvu-bin* xpidl*
libgkgfx.so* libsoftokn3.so* nvu-config* xpt_dump*
libgtkembedmoz.so* libssl3.so* plugins/ xpt_link*
[username@localhost nvu-0.60]$ WHAT DO I ENTER HERE?
What do I enter to get it installed? i believe the install file is 'nsinstall' but i don't know the commands.

thanks,
j
