Java Installation confusion

Here's the terminal - what in gods name am I doing wrong? The least I know is how to unpackage something -

[root@localhost local]# ls
bin games j2re-1.3.1-FCS-linux-i386.tar.bz2 lib sbin src
etc include libexec share

[root@localhost local]# tar -xvfl j2re-1.3.1-FCS-linux-i386.tar.bz2
tar: l: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

(Running Fedora Core 2)
