Type (not the #):

# pwd

to print your current directory.  If the file is on your desktop, then
you need to be in /home/bev/Desktop or somewhere similar.  You can
change directory with cd:

# cd /home/bev/Desktop

You can see the files in your current directory by doing an ls:

# ls

Once you see the file listed in the output from ls, you may need to
use a ./ to let linux know it needs to look in the current directory
(.):

# tar -xzvf ./flashplayer_10_plugin_debug.tar.gz

HTH,

Peter.
