unpack your tarball to /etc/puppet/modules directory, and rename it to the module name which defined in manifests/init.pp.

like you downloaded puppet-ntp-2.0.1.tar.gz, unpack to /etc/puppet/modules/puppet-ntp-2.0.1, the modules name should be ntp and you can use 'head /etc/puppet/modules/puppet-ntp-2.0.1/manifests/init.pp' command to verify. then rename puppet-ntp-2.0.1 to ntp, you can use it now.
