This is like a zip file in Windows, in that it contains a bunch of files collected together and then compressed.Anyone know how to open following file ? ( I am new to linux )
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")
tar xjvf rhel-rg-en-4.tbz
You haven't tried it the other way, have you Scott ;-)
