Installing Opera 8 on FreeBSD

I'm a n00b to UNIX, but I'm making much progress. My preferred browser is Opera, and the ported version with FBSD 5.4 is Opera 7.54. Because I lost my opera key, I'd prefer to have version 8 which does not require a key. How can I install the .tar.gz on FreeBSD? I am somewhat familiar with installing it on Debian Linux, but this a new thing for me.

Best regards,

Untar the file and read the README.txt or the INSTALL.txt file in the directory where you untarred the file.

Thanks, but I got it. I cvsup'd my ports and installed it that way. I'm learning . . . .
