Question Installing rpm2targz.tar.bz2 on Fedora Core 2

I'm trying to install rpm2targz.tar.bz2
After the command 'tar -xjvf rpm2targz.tar.bz2' which works fine, I'm having problems with the command
'./configure':' bash: ./configure: No such file or directory'. Everything stops here. What should I do?

Sorry if you've already tried this, but after extracting the archive you have to cd to the directory it created, then use the ./configure command. And installation methods differ from program to program, so the ./configure command might not apply to that specific one. If in doubt, read the install instructions that come with all source packages. It's usually called INSTALL or install.txt etc.
