I'm guessing the tarball gets around the "permissions are whiped-out" issue, and as the GP mentions, this is only for moving files from one *nix machine to another (not playing files off of the external drive). Seem pretty straight-forward to me. It just doesn't address the permissions problem when playing files directly off of the drive.
