That is:
wordperfect-8.0-unpacked.tgz - ready to unpack
wordperfect-8.0.tar.gz - original installer

The second archive contains already installed WP you need only to unpack into /usr/local.
For example:
su -c 'tar -C /usr/local -xvf wordperfect-8.0-unpacked.tgz'
or
sudo tar -C /usr/local -xvf wordperfect-8.0-unpacked.tgz
I repeat: this software doesn't work on modern distros. But it should work on distros that had libc 5 compatibility packages in their repos from few years back like 32-bit Mandriva 2011. Of course, first install libc5 compatibility stuff. But ideally just try it on some distro from 1998. Mandrake recommended for those without much linux-fu. :)
Have fun. :)
