a problem with "un taring".

I'm having some trouble with the "bitftp" procedure for getting the
pcl sources. Can anyone help? ...
I did succeed in getting the proper mail files and 
uudecoding them. I assume that the file resulting from "uudecode"
is not compressed as that is what the "uncompress" command says when
trying to uncompress it. The real problem occurs when I try to untar
the tar file. After successfully extracting all of the "text" files,
e.g. 12-7-88-notes.text, the tar command encounters a checksum
error when it trys to extract the first "lisp" file, boot.lisp. I
tried changing 5Es to 7Es, as suggested in the bitftp help, to no avail.
Does anyone have any idea what might be going wrong? Any help
