I'm not quite sure where the / here comes from, it is what is causing

6) If you can see the filename
SMC_USB_WIRELESS_2662.tar.gz in the
output of the previous command continue, otherwise go back to step 1
It looks like those filenames are subtly different.
SMC_USB_WIRELESS_2662W.tar.gz versus SMC_USB_WIRELESS_2662.tar.gz
(without a "W" following the 2662).
Make sure you use the correct one for the "tar" command, depending
on what the file is actually called.
