Using TAR

Hi All,

	I downloaded dosemu and got a tar file.  Now remember I don't know a whole 
lot about Linux and so I managed to copy the file to a directory I 
created.  I then went to the directory and tried tar -x filename and heard 
nothing.  Only control-z or was it -c worked to get me back to the prompt. 
So how do I extract the contents of the dosemu file and run the program?  I 
presume I can extract the files in the directory I have created for them 
which I am sitting in.
