Welcome to Superuser, What have you tried so far and what was the result of that? – 50-3 Sep 18 '13 at 3:35

General installation guide for .tar.gz:

tar -xzf dnsmasq-2.45.tar.gz


cd softwarePath/



make install

This would be the standard idea around installing a .tar.gz file off-line, the only issue I see you facing is dependencies. If you haven't got the dependencies for dnsmasq installed prior your going to have a bad time of it all
