    Just download the .tar.bz version for your 32 or 64 bit linux system
    http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/one_step_closer_11.00_1104/
    and install as follows in case you already have Opera installed.
    (This will allow side by side installs)

    Assuming you use 32bit linux and downloaded this to your '~/Downloads' directory start a terminal window and install it as follows:

    cd ~/Downloads
    tar xf opera-11.00-1104.i386.linux.tar.bz2
    opera-11.00-1104.i386.linux/install

    Note that I then just copy my existing profile in ~/.opera to the new ~/.opera-11 but leaving out the
    Toolbar folder (due to different layout as opposed to Opera version 10.63)

    Easy way to test alpha/beta versions without messing with your stable 10.63 install.
