    try yum update or yum install tar

    and make sure you type the cmd like ... tar -zxvf file.tar.gz e.t.c

    which tar
    And

    Code:
    whereis tar
    And see if they turn up anything.

    Does /bin/tar work for you?

    Code:
    /bin/tar --help
    if the above does not work then do
    Code:
    rpm -e tar-1.14-12.5.1.RHEL4
    rpm -i [url]http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4.7/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/tar-1.14-12.5.1.RHEL4.i386.rpm[/url]

    If I had to guess, it looks like tar has been deleted from your server. I don't know if this was done intentionally or accidentally by an admin on your server or if your server has been rooted.

    Run the command:

    Code:
    rpm -ql tar
    and see where tar is suppose to be installed at. If it lists /bin/tar then tar has been deleted from your server.

    You might reinstall it by running:

    Code:
    yum remove tar
    yum install tar
    though you should really investigate the reason why tar was removed in the first place.
