    from you question i guess you do not have a lot of linux experience,
    right? because, in linux we do not install software by "extracting
    them to their correspondent directories" as you might in other
    operating systems..

    instead, use (in my order of preference) YaST, zypper, rpm or compile
    from source (or other options [like deb or yum] if using other
    distributions)..

    i'm not sure where you need to begin to learn the correct way, maybe
    some combination of here:

    in general that's good advice, but these (zencart, oscommerce) are PHP
    applications to be installed on a webserver--by extracting the downloaded,
    compressed archives to their respective locations. there's no rpm or other
    packages for this.

    i don't understand the original question though: how comes you can not
    manage to "extract them to their correspondent directories?"

    i assume you downloaded the packages and extracted them somehow,
    somewhere. if that's not where they're supposed to be, just move them. are
    you sitting in front of the webserver, or are you logging in via sftp or
    ssh? what's your operating system, and the webserver's (if that's not the
    same)?
