i understand the above, but yesterday from irc i was
told by marcus(nick name), something like this:-
settrans /tmp/foo.tar.gz /hurd/tarfs; cd
cp bar /tmp"
Above it seems like translator is set to foo.tar.gz,
which converts it to a directory, then cd into that.

Which one is correct?
First seems to be right for me!
