uncompress error with packet.Z using RedHat 6.1

I am trying to install the disk agent onto some of my machines. When I run uncompress packet.Z it tells me this is not in compressed format. If i do a gunzip on the packet.Z it will create the packet file but when I do a tar -xf on the packet file it says its not a tar file. I am getting the packet.Z files from the December 1999 Applications CD. I have tried both the core install files and the disk agent packet.Z file. Is there a version of uncompress I need, I currently have version 4.1

Thanks in advance.

This almost sounds like a corruptted file to me.

What happens when you type 'file packet.Z'

What is returned?
