please do as the README instructs you:
adapt the top of the configure script to where you
want to install VMD, run ./configure, cd to src
and to a 'make install'

alternatively (if you have a 32-bit i386 machine),
you can download the FC4 rpm from the contrib section
and just use rpm -ihv on that (as root)...
