David,

Yes, if you have a relatively current version of WinZip it can handle the
UNIX  gzip files. Also I believe IBM has ported Gzip to the AS/400. I can't
remember the link but I know its in the area on the AS/400 site where they
put some of the UNIX utilities they port. We have both Gzip and Zip support
in our FTP Manager product, too. Gzip was a pretty straight-forward port.
Zip is much more complicated....
