run 'bunzip2 filenamegoeshere.tar.bz2'

this will put the tar file in to the directory where the bzip file is. then untar it using...

tar -xvf filenamegoeshere.tar

which will put it into your current directory.

I *think* you can pipe one to the other:

bunzip2 file.tar.bz2 | tar -xvf

but i've not tried it myself. .tar.gz files are much easier to unzip for future reference...

tar -zxvf file.tar.gz
