Squid on SCO - how to install?

Hi people,

I have a SCO Open Server v5.0.4 machine onto which I want to install

I have never compiled a program for Unix before and am having a
difficult time.

So far, I've discovered that the file I downloaded for Squid,
squid-1_1_20-src_tar is in some sort of format that tar can't

The installation instructions that come from the download site look like

To build and install the Squid Cache, type:

        % ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/squid
        % make all
        % make install

This isn't much good to me since I can't even decompress the tar file.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
