Need help installing CodeIgniter on Apache running on Solaris server

I am an idiot when it comes to Unix and this instruction here doesn't help either, http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/installation/index.html.  
I uploaded and upzip the installation files.  I see the index.php but I cannot find the "application/config/config.php".  Is application a folder?  Where is it?  And what does it mean, base url?

Thank you.

My unix system, SunOS cs-server.usc.edu 5.10 Generic_120011-14 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise                                                                              -T5220
System type is SUN4V with 65408 MB of memory.
and Apache web server, 1.3.42

there is config.php file under config directory which is under application directory which must be in that unzip installation files.

the base URL is the URL or web link which you want to access from your pc or any machine. Open the config.php file in text editor (e.g vi editor) and there must be some URL change setting or text where you can enter your URL which you want to access.
