The "tar file is a directory" error is due to a bug in the busybox version of the tar utility program.

You might be able to get it working by replacing the symbolic link to "busybox" that is named /bin/tar (or is it /usr/bin/tar?  I forget).

Here's how I would do it:

Boot up a version of Linux that uses the full version of tar.  The easiest way to do this is to do an "enhanced" hd-install of DSL 0.6.2.   Otherwise:

(1) you can boot up DSL version 0.5.x or boot up a Knoppix CDROM.
    Copy the /bin/tar file to a floppy disk or some other storage medium.

(2) Boot up your newer version of DSL 0.6.x   Then run the Synaptic Install Script.

(3) Delete the symbolic link located at /bin/tar.

(4) Copy the full-featured version of tar (from step 1) to /bin/tar.

(5) Try using Synaptic and see if your apt-get install will work correctly.

Good Luck.
