cant install bzip2
i downloaded the bzip2-1.0.2.tar.gz file and put it on a floppy because my redhat system isnt on the internet yet. i tried to move the file to the /usr dir from the floppy so i can untar, but it says can not read file and only copies about 280k although its a 650k file. why is it doing this?

Could be a damaged disk or you may not have permission.

Try copying it to your home directory anyway, because it will probably need unpacking, compiling and installing.

Can't you use bzip2 anyway (I though it would be pretty standard.) I know tar usually has it installed with it.

If you're running Red Hat 9.0, I guarantee you it's already installed. Type

which bzip2

at a command line. If it spits anything back, you already have it.
