Some problem installing pygame

P: 7
Im working in red hat linux 9.0. I've downloaded the pygame package
but there is some problem while installing it. For the tar version, initial steps execute OK, namely,
[root@localhost root]# tar xzvf pygame-1.7.1release.tar.gz
[root@localhost root]# cd pygame-1.7.1release
but after this:
[root@localhost pygame-1.7.1release]# ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

So i don't hav a configure file? What should i do now?

Hello? Red Hat 9.0! Its like 47 years old! Red Had diched the "Red Hat"- branded distributions a LOOOOONG time ago. Nowdays the comercial version is called RHEL and the free community edition is called Fedora. Currently Fedora 7.
I hope by god you have some special need for exactly that version or else i feel realy sory for you.

Ubuntu is a realy nice modern dist.

And if a am not totaly off, Pygame uses a python install script, Like most python stuff.
try:
[root@localhost pygame-1.7.1release]# python setup.py
