Multiple steps for installing?

Subject: Multiple steps for installing?

I have to install a piece of software via a tarball.
In reading through the documentation, I can't 
quite figure out how to do the following:

1.  Check to see if a specific directory exists and not 
follow through with the rest if it's there.
2.  Create a directory 
3.  Copy a file from the policy host to each client.
4.  Untar the file
5.  Create a symlink to that directory

On a related note, I need to check for a directory 
first and delete it and the associated symlink if 

In plain english, there's are about 10 different 
versions of a piece of software installed on 
all my solaris boxen (41 as of this writing) and 
I need to delete all but the correct version and 
then install that version.

I'm sure there's a way to do this, I just haven't 
figured it out yet.  
Some other stuff, but I'll ask about that later.

Thanks a ton people!
