  Certainly. A tardist archive is just a tar archive of an 'inst'
  distribution.  Retrieve the tardist file directly to disk (in Mosaic
  or Netscape one does this by shift-clicking the link to the tardist
  file), name it something.tar, untar it as you would any tar file, and
  install it as you would any inst distribution.
