For those unfamiliar with gzip and tar:
Gzip is a compression program, taking as input one file and
compressing its contents (gunzip reverses the process). Simply use
"gunzip <file>.gz" to decompress the file.
Tar is an archive program (it's name is a shortened form of "tape
archive"). To extract the contents of a tar file, use "tar xvf
<file>.tar". The "f" tells tar that it is handling a file (instead of
magnetic tape), the "x" tells tar to extract the contents, and "v"
tells tar to be verbose and report everything it extracts.
Since gzip works on one file, the typical process is to tar a
directory tree and then gzip it; unpackaging it is the reverse
process (using gzunip).
Note that, when these packages are opened, you must do so on a non-FAT
filesystem (HPFS or NTFS).
