Different Linux distributions use a variety of packaging methods, so it is difficult to gues what format they might be in on a CD.

If they are in .tar.gz format, copy them to your root directory and run

tar xvvf nameofpackage.tar.gz

If they are in a .bin file, copy them to your hard drive, make them executable

chmod +x nameofinstalller.bin

then launch the program

./nameofinstaller.bin

If they are in Debian package format (.deb), and you have a Debian-based distro run

dpkg -i packagename.deb

If they are in RPM format (.rpm), and you have a distro that uses RPM packages (OpenSUSE, Fedora, Red Hat, Mandriva), run

rpm -i packagename,rpm
