Unzip a zipped rpm file


I have a fresh download to unzip.

The name of the file is


g4l-v0.14beta.zip



The dog ate my manual... actually I had a lending libray reference
which had to be returned.


Red Hat Fedora Core 2 running on a P-2 in a removable drive.


The program is Ghost for Linux with which I want to begin
backups.


No previous Linux experience.


signed,

noob

This may be too obvious, but the command should be directed down the directory tree /home/user... filename
right?

You can either:

1) Give the absolute path
unzip /home/user/file

2) the relative path
If you are in your home directory and the file is in /home/user/myfiles/file
unzip myfiles/file

The way I do it is to cd to that directory and then unzip. If you don't you have to add the directory you want it unzipped to. Otherwise it will unzip in the current direcory you are in.

Thank you. Now that dialup is working I should
be able to build my links to the forums here and
not have to change drives so much.
