To uncompress a tar file is tar -xf or tar -xvf to see the filenames.  If
the archive has directories it'l put them beneeth your current directory.
If these are binary files they usually should go to /usr/local/bin/<dirname>
where <dirname> (without the <> is the directory of the tar files.If your
tarball is in your home directory you have to specify where you want the
archive to put files and it wil putany directorys beneeth that.  If the
archive is source files, look at its readme file for installation

Subject: help with installing dectalk pc

        Hi folks,
Can anyone give me step by step instructions on how to install the dectalk
pc driver on a fedora box for speakup?  I only learned how to install rpm,
but never learned how to install
the .tar.gz files.  I want to try dectalk pc with speakup on fedora.  I will
appreciate the help.
PS, I am a nubie, so the more details the better.
