I found this thread with instructions for rooting this tablet here:

It is an old thread, to hence my question here. I hope this does not constitute double posting.
I am a beginner and would like some assistance with understanding step #2 in the rooting instructions here please:

"Flash autorootp600mj4.tar.md5 with Odin v3.09 (put in AP slot, don't change any other settings, click start)"

I know where to find and download the first file in Win7 (not linux Mint 17.3 KDE which I use?). However, I have no idea where to find and install "Odin v3.09".
Do I find it on my computer and download it?
Then transfer to my tablet somehow?
Or, download it direct to my tablet?

You download it to the computer and run it - and you download the Samsung driver to the computer in case you haven't already (that goes without saying, which is why BeansTown didn't mention it) - you can get it at SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones - get the SAMSUNG Android USB Driver for Windows (25.32MB) file. You can find Odin at (Always use the latest version - 3.12.7 is about it for now.) (You can also find Heimdall there, which can be used to flash a Samsung using Linux - although Odin is far easier.) Just scroll down until you see the link to 3.12.7.
