Install CPIO

I am trying to install Redis on my iSeries, but I need to have CPIO installed. I attempted to go to the youngiprofessionals site and do the following:

Download these files first (prepare phase)
Download click here (4 files) → rpm.rte, wget.rpm, Attach:setup.sh, Attach:wwwinstall.sh to your PC.
ftp files from your PC to IBM i (binary mode)
ftp myibmi
> bin
> mkdir /QOpenSys/download
> cd /QOpenSys/download
> put rpm.rte
> put wget.rpm (example version: wget-1.9.1-1.aix5.1ppc.rpm)
> put setup.sh
> put wwwinstall.sh

On IBM i:
call qp2term
> cd /QOpenSys/download
> chmod +x setup.sh          <---make executable
> setup.sh                   <---install rpm.rte and wget.rpm (example version: wget-1.9.1-1.aix5.1ppc.rpm)

Then I ran:

> cd /QOpenSys/download
> chmod +x wwwinstall.sh
> wwwinstall.sh GetBase_wget

When I went to /opt/freeware/bin there was no CPIO present.

I also attempted to download the RPM directly. I got: cpio-2.5-1.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

However, I am not sure how to extract the file to get CPIO

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks
