Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Untar them to ~/.fluxbox for locals and /usr/X11R6/share/fluxbox or some such for global - system styles are what comes with flux or are added to /usr/blah and user is what you add to ~/.fluxbox. It should be defined in ~/.fluxbox/init.
Depends on the tar, though - you should end up with a ~/.fluxbox/styles and so on (with the style file(s) in it) but they may not be tarred correctly - txvf to check and make sure, of course.

This is one of the things I really love about Midnight Commander...enter a tar file as if it were a directory and simply copy the files over as if they were already extracted...saves me the bother of checking whether the archives are standard.
Huh. Cool tip. Had a mental breakdown. Or two. I knew mc could view the tar but never extended the concept to manipulating the files like that. I also screwed up the command, now that I see it again. tzvf.
