1) You have to compile it yourself, in theory by typing "make". This of course only works if you have a development environment installed. This is not the case for most of the current distros :(
Also note Linus' note in the Makefile.
2) I wouldn't trust this tarball (make could do anything on your computer), and this is free software, so why not just get this (or older versions) from the original source: www . kernel . org / pub / linux / kernel / Historic / (remove the spaces, no urls allowed in comments :-/ )
3) this is only a kernel, not a complete OS. Note the missing GNU/(linux). See http : / / en . wikipedia .org / wiki / GNU
