TAR says that the new trucluster patch for v4.0b does not seem to be of tar format.
I have downloaded it and ftp'd it in binary mode. The customer has done the same.

Maybe it was suppose to be in some compressed format, then tar.
Try:

file filename

the "file" ustility guesses the file type. If it says it's in compressed format, uncompress
it first.

What was the file name? Can you give URL of this file ?
