    Uninstalled tar (OOPS!)

    So, I just got a really awesome ubuntu 9.10 VPS. I got it all setup and working, then (not thinking) removed tar because it seemed to be working incorrectly and I wanted to reinstall it. Of course, as I'm sure all of you know, dpkg relies on tar, and I don't have developer tools installed, so I'm kind of stuck right now.

    Can you help?

    Copy into /bin, that should at least let you reinstall the package properly.
