Default total newbee linux question

I have never used linux/unix before and one thing I can't find an answer for has to do with tar files.

The ISPConfig instructions say:
Log in to your shell as root.
Unpack the ISPConfig-archive

tar xvfz ISPConfig*.tar.gz

and my question is, does it matter where the tar file is before it it unpacked?
Right now, I FTP the file to my user directory /home/newbee and then extract the file there. Is this ok? Or, should it go somewhere else?

Thanks.

You can unpack it wherever you want, except in the directory /root/ispconfig.
