I've flashed from linux several times onto my 770s and now my 810, and
have never needed to unpack components first...
just download the flasher and the image, run the flasher with the
command line from the howto on the maemo.org site.
I can see the flasher breaking out the various components as it installs
them one by one onto the tablet.
Can't imagine it'd be different on PPC...
