I can not install anything on my Linux machine

Forums: 

Hi guys.
I am totally new on Linux and I am using a CentOS Red Hat Linux Machine....My problem is that...I can not seem to be able to install anything. I have a tab called Applications and when expanding the menu, I get System Tool, then Terminal Window. I think that is where I should start my command line on installing.

But I have never installed anything on Linux before. I have my software Unzipped to my E:/ drive which is an external Hard-drive.

Can anyone please give me a step my step DUMMY help on how to Install software on this machine (i.e. SmartFoxServer)

Thank you in advance guys.
