If you have wget, a handy tool for downloading stuff using CLI, you could download the file into /usr directory using:

cd usr && wget[1].6.00.02.tgz
Remember that you need to have write permissions into /usr to accomplis this. Instead you could just try and download the file into your home dir first,

cd && wget[1].6.00.02.tgz
