However, with most linux distributions these days you can install software pretty much automatically. You just need the install command for you distribution.
For example, on mandriva linux, you could probably just type: urpmi cpanel
and it would be installed.
I think some distributions use something like yum cpanel. Not sure.
In any event,if your talking real beginner stuff, find the package control manager for your linux distribution and try and install using that.
