    tar is a method used to archive files that is commonly used on linux. It's not like burning an iso, it's just a data file and can be burned as such. It is not a CD image.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    as minibubba suggested .tar file is an archive so whatever you are looking to burn is most prolly IN that file. now what you are thinking is right, extract that archive and you will have whatever you are looking for,
    here is am open-source program that would allow you to extract tar files in windows

    i don't know whether WinZip or WinRAR supports tar files and i don't have any way to test it either.
    try them, if they do support then its gud for you and if they don't then you know where to go.
