i need to move files off one server and onto another. the easiest way would be to make a tarball of the first site and move it to the new site (i can't get in through ssh - it's a long story).
but i can't figure out how to do the first part with fetch.

Sorry, but Fetch cannot tell the server to make a tarball for you; you'd have to SSH in or log in some other way that gets you a command line to do that.
Since you cannot SSH in, the best suggestion I have is to just copy the uncompressed folders and files from server to server using Fetch. If you open two transfer windows, one for each server, you can drag files and folders between them.
