Thanks for your reply.....I  finally got the {suncpio.Z} file to 
unarchive. I used a syntax very close to what you suggested. The 
(cd[destination]; cpio -icdu) part is what confused me, I used:

cat suncpio.Z* | zcat | cpio -icdu

Now I need to finish the rest of the install!

Thanks again and have a good day!

The README.5 file for the GRASS 4.1 Release 5 has the following command for 
unpacking the archive file:

zcat fname.Z | (cd [destination]; cpio -icdu)

I think this will give you the results you want.
