alright the easy answer is:
tar -xzvf pengaol.tar.gz

the long answer is:

man tar(or any item of interest) will give you a lot of info about what that item does.

There's also an informative post (sticky, even!) in this forum about compiling from source, thanks to the efforts of Whiteskin and others. You might have a look.

Hope this helps.
