tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Looks like you don't have bzip2 installed on that machine.

You can download it from http://ccrma-www.stanford.edu/planetccrma/...86/RedHat/RPMS/ or it should be on your cdrom if you still have it.

The file you'll want is bzip2-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm
