I presume that Red Hat Motif 2.0.1 is a .rpm file? You need to either
get rpm2cpio (and convert it to a cpio archive, which you can extract
normally) or install rpm properly on your system (which includes configuring
the rpmrc and setting the permissions on it).
If worst comes to worst, you can download Red Hat for free or order it
for less than $10 from Cheapbytes (http://www.cheapbytes.com).
Hope this helps,
Apologies to legitimate repliers.
