I'm trying to get this little flash player alternative for PPC Linux, but it's in an archieve and all I know is how to install .ppc.rpm files (since it's pratically automatic), can anyone of you please give me a step by step guide on how to install programs inside of a tar.bz2 ?

First you should extract it, right-click on the archive and select "extract here" and read any instructions it contains and post back..

Well there's an INSTALL instructions but I get stuck when it says 'CD' to the directory, what does that mean?

It means that you must open a terminal (http://www.fedorafaq.org/basics/#terminal) and use the cd command to change to the directory where the files are located.
