Yes, yes, yes! :)

Try 'tar xvjf package.tar.bz2'
As for all packages at once - well, just keep on doing that way. It's safer.
Then learn about how tar works, and bash, and etc... you know.

On a side note, let me tell you two things.
 - Don't start new threads as replies to other posts.
 - Don't 'top answer'; First quote the original, then write your reply
These are just netiquette.
Thank you.
