There are two main package formats on linux. The debian and the RPM. You
should pick the package your linux installation uses. Redhat, mandrake, suse
and more use the RPM.

For RPMs, get the curl i386.rpm file. Unfortunately, there's no 7.5.1 version
around in that format so you'd have to get a slightly older. Pick one here:
http://curl.haxx.se/latest.cgi?curl=i386.rpm

If you're running a debian installation, then pick your archive from
http://curl-deb.sourceforge.net/download.html

Compiling and building curl on linux is about is only a tad bit harder than
getting the binaries:

# tar -xzf curl-7.5.1.tar.gz
# cd curl-7.5.1
# ./configure
# make
# make install
