tar zxvf phoenix-0.4-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.gz

cd phoenix
./phoenix

I moved the extracted phoenix dir to /usr/local. Created desktop launchers, got some pretty icons (art.gnome.org, kde-look.org).

I would also recommend that you get Xft installed. If you have moz then copy the libgfx_gtk.so to the phoenix/components dir. Remember to back up the original just in case <grin>.

Enjoy.
