    What operating System? If it is windows, to create a directory is the same as making a folder, extracting refers to decompressing a compressed file in some format or other. if it is .zip, .rar, .7z u can download 7zip (just google it) to extract it to the directory (ie. Folder) of your choice.

    If it is Linux, you can just do this:

    Code:
    mkdir directory #make the directory
    cd directory #were we are going to extract
    tar -xf ../file.tar
    But please, be more specific

    If you cannot create a directory (folder) or extract a zip or rar file, I suggest finding a good book on win basics. It's amazing how many people have no idea how the rudiments work! (shaking head)
