These days I install Ant from cvs, so I'm don't know well how 
to install the binary. So the following instructions are just my guess.

Move to the directory that you want to install Ant into. 
For me, it's /usr/local. Then just extract them from the tarball.

% cd /usr/local
% cd gzip -cd apache-ant-1.6.1-bin.tar.gz | tar xvf -

Maybe, /usr/local/apache-ant-1.6.1 directory will be made.

Finally, setup some environment variables like ANT_HOME. See for more details.
