[chuck-users] Complete and utter Newbie

I just came across ChucK after dabbling with SC, Common Music and Max/MSP.  I basically know nothing about programming but ChucK looks very interesting and I'd like to know more.  I've download the executable file (Mac OS 10.6.2) and I've dropped the folder "chuck-' into applications.  I've followed the instructions and opened the terminal and now I'm stuck.....

The instructions say go to bin/directory (replace chuck-x.x.x.x.-exe with the directory name).  What and where is bin/directory?

You'll have to forgive my complete stupidity, I'm an 'acoustic composer' trying to dabble with electronic based music and so far i cant even install ChucK.

Messing around with my terminal seems scary, am I likely to blow my computer up??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks
