Dear Robbie

No I was not, so thanks alot!

here I am stuck:
1. I only have /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/
                                       ^ (typo?)
2. the cat ... command line bails out:
cat kernel-xen-....abuild-extra.tar.gz | (cd
/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/ && tar xf - )
tar: Archive is compressed. Use -z option
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

You might see from this: I am no linux guru 
Any help on this?
