Ok i just installed Linux last night so i'm still trying to figure out what i'm doing,lol. Ok so i stored all my files on another computer on my home wired network. So i was reading up how to setup a network between a Windows computer and a Linux. I found out i need to download "Samba". So i went to download it from this site: http://us1.samba.org/samba/ftp/
First of all i have almost no clue what to download. i downloaded samba-latest.tar.gz figuring it was the right one. After it downloaded i extracted into a folder on my desktop. the problem is i have no clue what to do now. I looked through the folder and couldn't see any install icons.
So my questions are
1)Did i download the right one?
2)if I did what i'm i clicking to start the install?
