Chapter 2, section "How to install the software" tells you what to do when 
you have a file that ends in .tar.gz or in .tar.bz2. Maybe that's why so many 
people don't understand that you have to bunzip or gunzip the patch, since it 
is not tarred.

To Sanjuro:
The links are not bad, they assume that you have unzipped the patch, using 
this command:
for bz2 files: bunzip2 <file>
for gz files: gunzip <file>

To Gerard:
Maybe people need to know that patches or files that are not tarred also need 
to be unzipped. Then we could quote and say "RTFM". ;)
