    try

    tar -xvzf filename



    Some other commands that might help you with putty:
    To change directories: cd /path/to/your/directory
    To delete a file: rm filename
    To delete a directory: rm -rf directoryname
    To unzip a zip file: unzip filename
    To unzip a tar.gz file: tar -xvzf filename
    To zip a file: don't know - try "man zip"

    Please update my if this works / doesn't work.
