Some problem installing pygame

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
