I go into X as root, double click on the cd icon, which mounts the cd
currently in the drive, and then. open the appropriate file-manager window
(forgetting the correct name... not on YDL side at the moment), and then
double click on the rpm; this automatically runs the package installer for
that package (kpackage), and then adds it to the tree.

for tarballs (.tgz, .tar.gz) tar -zxvf FILENAME at a console window.
