It looks that you have RedHat. just double click on the rpm and the package manager should install. However, as Dan says, this should already be in your menu. Look there first!

however u have to download and install the plugin for xmms to run mp3 files, because that support doesnt comes with it originally.
download the plugin for xmms from following url
download it and install it using following command
rpm -Uvh xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-21.i386.rpm [enter]
after this open xmms and enjoy the sound of disco
and yeah, please dont type [enter], just use the enter key

su -makes you root
rpm -i [file name] -makes it install
rpm -Uvh [file name]- make it update
yum check-update -checks up dates and list them for your system, use this instead of up2date
yum update -updates all the available packages
yum install -y [package name] -installs the packages with answering yse to all install questions the package name is obtained from the get update list
i think that is some of the basics.....i'll work on getting a few post to a large tutorial of commands for you but atm not spending much time on web, on vacation at whistler.
oh and fedoranews.org has some nice tutorials
