Anyone know how to open following file ?

This is like a zip file in Windows, in that it contains a bunch of files collected together and then compressed.

You can extract the files like this:
$ tar xvfj rhel-rg-en-4.tbz
You'll see the names of the files as they are extracted.

(the "$" above represents the shell prompt - the command you type starts with "tar")

Paul.

the "f" argument must be last before filename (which is what the f stands for) with tar, so use instead

tar xjvf rhel-rg-en-4.tbz
