If you downloaded from the PiStore
Open X Windows and find the PiStore Directory (I think its in /usr/local/bin/indiecity), within it you should find PiSNES, in this folder put any ROMS you have in the 'roms' Folder (If the ROMS are .zip files there is no need to extract them)

Open a Terminal
Type - snes9x.gui

If you downloaded it Directly from pudding (squids) Site
Open X Windows, make a New Folder and change its name to something appropriate (e.g. PiSNES), put the downloaded zip file in it and extract it (right click on your mouse and select 'extract here'), put any ROMS you have in the 'roms' Folder (Again, if the ROMS are .zip files there is no need to extract them)

Open a Terminal and 'CD' into the Folder e.g. if you placed it in your 'Home' Directory
Type - cd /home/pi/PiSNES
Type - ./snes9x.gui
