You need to give us a hint which OS/distro you are using. For example in
Ubuntu/Debian you would do something like:

# apt-get install ufraw (or dcraw, or rawstudio)

If you want source, try 

http://ufraw.sourceforge.net or 
http://cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/ or 

which I got from Google.

ufraw will manipulate raw images and save them as .ppm which GIMP will
then open.

dcraw pretty much does the same, but at the command line and is very
powerful, but is NOT an image manipulation program like GIMP

Rawstudio saves in .tif or .jpg 

They are all designed to do basic manipulation for white balance,
exposure, contrast etc, but not full image manipulation. 

Personally I use either dcraw or Rawstudio. I believe you can get import
modules for the GIMP too, but I don't use those.
