How do I use UNTAR?

I have only tried the obvious:

Code:
v:\from_barnyard> untar vefatica.tar .\untarred\
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.
 ".\untarred\"

The directory .\untarred does exist.

The bigger picture ... a friend sent vefatica.tgz (web stuff from a server). I want to get at the files. I used UNGZIP on it and got vefatica.tgz.0.unzipped. I copied that to vefatica.tar. And here I am.

In the archive (using UNTAR /V on vefatica.tar) is

2007-08-20 10:30 1 vefatica\public_html\

I want to extract everything in there.

I can't UNTAR the whole thing because I get this and it stops..

Code:
v:\from_barnyard> untar vefatica.tar.gz
TCC: Error in archive V:\from_barnyard\vefatica.tar.gz :
  The current file is a symlink, and extracting symlinked files is not supported on the current platform. "vefatica/"
