try 'ls' before 'tar -xzf <file>'


--are you sure you're working in the right directory?--

FYI-

special characters can be accessed by putting a '\' in front of them.

I also prefer to hit <tab> while typing filenames. if the console beeps, it means there are
multiple matches, and you can hit <tab> again to see the list, otherwise it will auto-finish
typing the filename for you.
