To extract the cpio file,
move the cpio file to an empty directory,

"cpio" is just like a .tar or a .zip file: it's an archive with a bunch of files and directories in it.

The syntax you got should work. Here's the syntax I'd generally recommend:
Code:
1. Go to the directory you want to install to:
   cd SOME_DIRECTORY

2. Extract:
   cpio -ipvdumBc < MYFILE.cpio

3. Look for some kind of "readme.txt" in your newly extracted files:
   cd SOME_DIRECTORY/NEW_DIRECTORY
   ls
   <= Maybe you'll find something like "README.txt", "INSTALL.txt", "READ_ME_FIRST", etc
What you do *after* you extract the archive, of course, depends on the product

'Hope that helps .. PSM
