[tex-live] tikz in zenwalk

I am trying to get my latex up and running in a newly installed  
zenwalk linux box. However, apparently tikz cannot be installed  
automatically by the zenwalk package manager (netpkg), and so I have  
to do it by hand. However, I am relatively new to linux, and am having  
difficulty doing this.

I am running tetex on zenwalk. Should I persevere, or should I switch  
to texlive, or should I just ditch the whole operating system and  
start again with something like ubuntu, which I hear is a little  
easier to use for linux newbies?
