MM Homepage:
You must be sure to download: mm-1.1.2.tar.gz

Before you decompress the tarballs, it is a good idea to make a list of files on the system before you install MM, and one afterwards, and then compare them using diff to find out what file it placed where. Simply run find /* > MM1 before and find /* > MM2 after you install the software, and use diff MM1 MM2 > MM-Installed to get a list of what changed.

To compile you need to decompress the tarball (tar.gz) first.
        [root@deep /]# cp mm-version.tar.gz /var/tmp
        [root@deep /]# cd /var/tmp
        [root@deep ]/tmp# tar xzpf mm-version.tar.gz
