I suggest you download it again in some specific folder and then try to gunzip it. Create a new folder by the same name as your file without keeping the case so that it will be less confusing.

Thats just a text file.You should be able to read it using any text editor. vi is default editor in Linux. But you could open it in any text editor.

I think its too early you have started playing with Linux.
I recommend you to go through linuxcommands pages through google and learn few concepts of :
vi editor plus other simple fundamnetal commands in linux.

It would take a long run through this forum to teach linux from the beginning.
this forum is open to eradicate issues being faced rather than thinking to teach anyone from the start.
I want you to read few linux commands and then post whenever you dont understand what the command known for.
Hope you understood what i mean

If you do not know what to type or where to type commands it will be better for you to use the graphical version of the text editor located in Applications > Accessories > Text editor.
