The bz2 file is the install files.
It needs to be accessed by the Peanut install program to install Peanut Linux.
You do not need to uncompress it before hand.
What I often wind up doing is formating a partition (can be done from the Peanut boot/root floppies), copying the bz2 file to it and let the install program from the floppies detect and install Peanut Linux. The bz2 does not really need to be on the partition you want to install to.
You want the iso if you want to install from CD.

So i can just open up the peanut archive and copy it to my empty hard drive and run the setup on the other hard drive? also how do i mount my other hard drive without going into root? I keep getting a message saying the hdh is not in fstab file but i see the hard drive in the configuration. thanks

Do not "open up" the archive. Copy is to a "peanut" (possibly "PEANUT") folder in the root directory of any accessible partiition. I usually use the Peanut install floppies.

From the link above:
(a) If not installing from CD-ROM, download "peanut.bz2' & "peanut.zip" to
C:\peanut. Unzip 'peanut.zip' in current directory of C:\peanut; then run
"ram.bat". You can also install from floppy, e.g. .\images\(b,r)oot.img;

You can use ram.bat if you are doing this from Windows, otherwise I would suggest the install floppies.
Vector installs about the same way.
