People I'm at beginner level, so bare with me (or is it bear with me!?)

I am trying to install Mono onto a Debian VPS - I enter:
tar xf mono-2.0.1.tar.bz2

And it tells me no such file exists yet when I list the files in the director they include 'mono-2.0.1.tar.bz2'

mono-2.0.1.tar.bz2  opensim  wget-log

tar xf mono-2.0.1.tar.bz2
tar: bzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory

First off to untar a compressed bz2 file you need to use the j option i.e.
tar xjvf mono-2.0.1.tar.bz2

I see no other obvious errors other then it looks like bzip2 is not installed.
apt-get install bzip2
