I need help installing apps

I just downloaded a couple of things on my Windows system and transferred them via usb stick to my Mint 12 desktop. Now I am a total newbie and have no idea how to install them on the computer. I know very little about directories, paths or any of the other things that I'm sure I need to do this. What I downloaded are the following:

gnome-ppp-0.3.23.tar.bz2
gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3_0.10.7.debian-1_i386

I'm not really sure that I have the right apps that I was after but I think I do. Anyway if someone out there can give me a step by step way of installing these in very simple terms it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Roadtrash
