hello bruce,
that is mostly correct, but I would recommend that you just cd to
(from here, everything you want is included and in the same directory 
structure as on the target device)

no, just do
"tar  -cvjf  /home/bu4lu3si1/suseKMail.tar.bz2 ."
- note the dot '.' as source indicator - this will create the tarball in your 
target directory (/home/bu4lu3si1), the tarball will contain everything 
from /suse102/home/bruce/.kde/share/apps/kmail/mail - but _without_ absolute 
path (/suse102...) which is important!

mostly correct (note upper/lowercase: should be kmail instead of KMail ..)
