It would be helpful if you could point out exactly which part you're having problems with. Look at the README file since it lists the dependencies of TMW, all of which you'll have to install first. Some of them will already come with your sytem (like SDL and friends), while others you will probably have to compile yourself (like Guichan).

Once you have properly installed all dependencies, compiling TMW shouldn't be a problem. It will be a matter of "./configure" followed by "make". When that works you can run the game with "src/tmw". If you also want to install it to your system using "make install", you may want to choose "./configure --prefix=/usr" at the start. Also, I'm not sure if OpenGL support is default yet, but you can turn this on using "--with-opengl".

Unpack the source package and read around, it's all in there.

Mobidoy, the RPMs are different from the source package. All the info you need is inside the source package (is all at the downloads page). Inside it there is a README and a INSTALL file, read them.
