Everything you need is here:

http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com/dataspace/dav/wiki/Main/

But in brief:

1. Download the latest version (6.1)
2. Unpack the file
3. cd to the unpacked directory
4. ./conrigure
5. sudo make install
6. sudo /usr/local/virtuoso-opensource/bin/virtuoso-t

Then start trying it out on http://<your-host>:8890 replacing your-host with
the host you're running on ...

Hope that helps!
