Read the man page: ``man tar''.
In summary though: you're specifying the arguments incorrectly. The
filename needs to be preceeded by the `f' parameter, and there are
other parameters available depending on whether you want to extract the
files with original (as stored) permissions --`p'--, or if you want to
see the names of the files as they are being extracted --`v'-- and so
Try: ``tar xvf <name of archive>''.
mg's digression for the day.
