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....
