CD Creation Problems

I'm trying to install ant on my Solaris 9 workstation but the CD I create after downloading from Internet on XP keeps having a bad install of ant.

I can gunzip the file okay but have problems tar xvf the file.  Have checksum errors.
Another thing is that the file seems to get renamed to something else when I load onto Solaris.

What could be the problem?

ok, then use gnu tar instead of solaris tar.

(oops pressed submit to early)

Tar files may require gnu tar to extract
Tar files in the distribution contain long file names, and may require gnu tar to do the extraction.

Why not use your Sun box to download file, and unpack from the Solaris box,
download GUN tar binary from:

http://sunfreeware.com/

after you install GUN tar, you can use the following syntax to unpack the file:
cd /installdir

tar -zxvf /path-to/filename

to unpack apache-ant*
