Depending on which desktop environment you use, you may be able to right-click your menu button and select to edit your menu. You can then add a new entry to your menu and as command give the full location of your Blender 2.66a binary. You can then launch it from the menu. Usually you will have a README or INSTALL file in the tarball that details how to start the application.
