How to use lzm2dir/dir2lzm, etc?

I am trying to use the tools provided in the slax ISO's, but can't seem to get the lzm2mo/lzm2dir/deb2lzm, etc scripts to work-what am I doing wrong?
I copied these files to my /usr/bin directory-

and now I need to know HOW to use them?
Also-where can I get lzm2tgz?

I noticed at yahoo a post

user with tag: markds posted to a thread tha seems to be talked about in Italy regarding the converter you want: I Quote: "Although one would want to ask why you'd want to have an lzm2tgz converter when you can just download the tgz packages direct? Linuxpackages, Slackware official site and Alien's slackbuild's page more or less cover almost everything you would need. Other than some obsecure apps/drivers you might be looking at, and with a hdd install, most of those are a simple "./configure; make; make install" away."

Now, I am in no position to offer much help, perhaps if I could read Italian I would be able to see what they are discussing in the slackware org in that community. Alas, I can not... But perhaps if you post your question in the slackware community or see the area's mentioned in the above quote... Of course you may already know this as it is easy to find in a search...

Good luck...
