tar tzf /path/to/driver.tgz | less
Look at what that shows. If the lines look like:
it'll all go into /path/to/somewhere. If instead it says:
it'll all go into /usr/local/src/path/to/somewhere.
To actually install it:
tar xzf /path/to/driver.tgz
If it's created with bzip (instead of gzip) compression, use the "j"
tar xjf ...
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
