i've done it with single files a bunch.  what i wanted to do was send a group 
of files,
so i created a save file, ftp'ed it, and zipped it.  it was the unzipping that 
work.  locked the computer up.  used the old faithful dos based pkzip and 
version 2.04.

i was thinking about trying it on a different p/c to see if i got the same 
results.  my
p/c at home locks up a lot, where mine at work seldom does, but the fact it 
makes me nervous about it.  i don't have winzip at home, but i do at work, and 
give that a shot too.
