Our goal is to help small businesses get started with a professorial web presence that can be extended to almost any vision. The engine we use is the Drupal content management system used by thousands of sites across the internet and maintained and updated by a diverse community of people around the world. Drupal harnessed the power of open source software to allow unlimited modifications.

Everytime I untar a new drupal install (tar xzf drupal.x.x.x.tgz) it unpacks it in a drupalX directory. If I want to install in the root of my web server I have to untar in one location, then copy everything under drupalx/ to the root directory.
So I did a bit of Googling and found the command switch I need. strip
as in tar xzf drupal.x.x.x.tgz --strip=1
this can be done right in the root directory :)
Simple but effective.
