Open a terminal mode and type the following: [user]$ tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz You may need to be root or superuser to do this. You can become super user by type su in front of the command example I provided.

Thanks for your reply. I have installed RHEL 5.3 and the new kernel has detected my ethernet card. The old kernel was not detecting the card.
Now please tell me how to connect to internet. I have broadband connection. The service provider's name is "YouTele" and it provides installer for Windows only & does not provide support for Linux machines. (I want to completely shift to Linux).
In Windows, in Local Area Network Properties (TCP/IP Properties), I see that the
"Obtain an IP address automatically" --> is disabled.
"Use the following IP Address" ---> is enabled with the following:
IP Address: a.a.a.a
Subnet Mask: b.b.b.b
Default Gateway: c.c.c.c
"Obtain the DNS Server address automatically" --> is disabled
"Use the following DNS Server addresses" --> is enabled with the following:
Preferred DNS Server: x.x.x.x
Alternate DNS Server: y.y.y.y
In Linux, I click on System->Administration->Networking. Now should I enter all these values? I tried but still its not getting connected to internet?
