Downloading opencascade

Ok… now that I feel confident that Java 6 is configured properly in my bash and C-shell, on to the next step.
I set up a file in my home directory:
jonas@jonas-desktop:~$ cd ..
jonas@jonas-desktop:/home$ ls
jonas
jonas@jonas-desktop:/home$ cd jonas
jonas@jonas-desktop:~$ mkdir opencascade_downloads

jonas@jonas-desktop:~$

I went to the website:http://www.opencascade.org/getocc/download/

Btw… Your going to need to registered on the open cascade site for this to work.

Options displayed should be:
Download:
Open CASCADE latest public version
Open CASCADE animated demonstrations
Sample Open CASCADE models
Clicked on Open CASCADE latest public version
The option I was interested in was the one for linux:
download for Linux users, tgz archive:

OpenCASCADE_Linux.tgz (183 Mb)
This is going to take a while more later…

I also downloaded the documentation into a separe folder and unpacked it.  I ran install csh and here are some of the issues I had:
jjonas@jonas-desktop:~$ ls
Desktop    Examples  Opencascade_documentation  Pictures  Templates
Documents  Music     opencascade_downloads      Public    Videos
jonas@jonas-desktop:~$ cd Opencascade_documentation
jonas@jonas-desktop:~/Opencascade_documentation$
jonas@jonas-desktop:~/Opencascade_documentation$ ls
Autorun.inf  install.bat  OpenCASCADE_doc.tgz  readme.htm
images       install.csh  package
jonas@jonas-desktop:~/Opencascade_documentation$ csh
