Word Perfect install

I downloaded the file guilg00.gz for the Word Perfect install.  Logged in as root I copied the file to my home directory.  I went out to an Xterm window and ran this:

gunzip guilg00.gz ; tar -xvf guilg00

at the level gui00.gz is located at.  It finds the file then I get an error saying location is read only.  Should I be copying this file to another location?  Also I thought root had full control to the directory by default unless you physically restrict them.  Thanks Mark.

You don't want a - before xvf.

Also tar zxvf allows you to skip the gunzip setp.

Thanks, I will try that tonight.  Why would they put the dash in there if it is just causing problems?

I think part of this was my fault.  I entered the whole line

gunzip guilg00.gz ; tar -xvf guilg00

instead of 2 separate lines even so it did unzip and tar without the dash.  It is still not installing but I will ask a new question for that.  Thanks.
