      I guys i've downloaded few days ago this file "jboss-3.2.3.bz2" but inside i found only this file: "jboss-3.2.3"!!
      It's not an executable file or an archive so what i have to do with this file??
      Have i downloaded the wrong file??
      my o.s is winxp.
      Thanks ;)

          This is probably a bzip2 packed file. I'm not sure that Windows XP can unpack it properly. Once unpacked, the result is a tar file which must be unpacked using an untar utility. In Linux you would do the following to unpack the zipped archive:

          bunzip2 -cd jboss-3.2.3.bz2 | tar xvf -

          This unpacks it and send the result through the untar process.

          Since I don't use Windows of any kind, I can't tell you if Windows XP or Winzip can deal with the bz2 format. Once unpacked, you might be able to use the Java jar utility to unarchive it.

          Perhaps you should try another of the distributions such as the plain zip format. YMMV.

          Hope that helps.
