How to open bz2 files?


I've got gnochive 7.0.0 as my extractor, but it doesn't seem to extract these .bz2 files. Does anyone know the right procedure and/or software to get these files unzipped>?

Use bunzip2 or you can use tar with a command like this: tar jxvf <filename>

the tar command didn't seem to work (nor did gnochive). Would this have something to do with the fact that I'm on RH 7.3?
Where to get bunzip2?
Thanx. Scott

let me try again. I'm on 2 computers...this one is online and in another room than the new Linux box. So let me get this straight:
type in the command (root level) bunzip2 [gnochive-0.7.0,bz2]
does this install some kind of plugin to enable the bz2 extractions?

Okay, I get part of it...I did a man on bunzip2 so I'll just keep exploring. I'm pretty (completely?) new to this LInux world, so thanks for bearing with me.
