installing xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz onto ubuntu 8.10

Hi there,

I'm trying to install xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz onto ubuntu 8.10. I've been following the instructions (trying to install according to what's been posted in this site), with the following code I wrote on the terminal: sudo tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz-C/home/suzan/Desktop [because the tar file is here] however; the system doesn't accept saying there isn't such a file... And I tried getting the tar file under the opt directory but couldn't do that either. I don't know what to do.. I've read the postings and tried out what I did find, but still haven't been able to install xampp. I'd appreciate your urgent help since I've been busy with this for hours and really don't know what to do.. Thanks :( :(

That's not the command what you can read in the install instructions for XAMPP...

BTW:
"-C" is a separate parameter and is for the target dir, not the source dir.

Well, in the shell, first "cd" to the dir with the file "xampp-linux-1.7.tar.gz", and then use the command, exactly like you can read in the install instructions.
