Hi Sam,

> but am getting the following error message
> *tar: modem.bin: Not found in archive*

tar wants the whole path of the file as it is listed in the output of
-tf.  Do `tar -tf ldu900x.tar', find modem.bin, e.g. with grep, then do,
for example,

    tar --delete --file=ldu900x.tar 'foo/bar/xyzz/modem.bin'

putting the path in single quotes in case it contains spaces or other
characters that would be interpreted by the shell.

Cheers, Ralph.
