loading Mcafee from cdrom

I am trying to load Mcafee from a cdrom. The file is called vlnx4121.tar.z. I have copied the file using the cp comand to the /tmp directory. I tried using the tar -xvf vlnx4121.tar.z and keep getting the following error:
Tar:vlnx4121.tar.z: No such file or directory
Tar:error is not recoverable:exiting now

If anyone has any clues in what i may be doing wrong??

Umm the "No such file or directory" error leads me to believe that something went wrong with the cp command or your not in the correct directory when you try to tar it. Try:

tar xzvf /tmp/vinx4121.tar.z

If your looking for anti-virus try F-Prot. Its free!
