You should just have to double click on it, and Stuffit Expander will open and decompress it. After it decompresses, you can just double click on the .saver item and an install box will pop up asking you if you wish to install it just for you, or for all users. Make your choice then voila.
If for some reason you don't have stuffit expander, get it
. Don't worry about the ratings, or the shareware label.
Edit: Just found the free version of expander. If you just need to expand, then this is all you need.
Wo dude, you're in Orlando. I'm currently living in both Naples and Winter Park. Do you go to Fullsail by any chance?

You can also install it manually by puttig the .saver module into ~/Library/Screen Savers (where "~" is your Home directory). Then open system preferences and go to the Desktop & Screen Saver pane, and you'll see the new saver in the list.
You can also put the .saver file in the /Library/Screen Savers folder in the root directory. This would be better if the computer has multiple users and you want the saver to work for all of them.
