A simple question about Gopher.

Hello all,
	Please try not to laugh at this.  I don't understand Unix at all
yet, and am trying to set up a Gopher client here on a Silicon Graphics
mainframe running Irix.  I've FTP'd the necessary Unix gopher files and
even managed to figure out how to uncompress them (at least there aren't
any .Z at the ends of the new file names).  What I don't know is how to
"un-tar" them.  I've tried using the online help but I only speak English,
not computerese.  I tried swais but there was no mention of tar in the
	Sorry about cluttering the lines with an easy question.
