Hi Mark,

Another group I belong to, disklavier@yahoogroups, has had problems 
with the zip utility in xp, where files have been sent to members not 
using xp.  I think for compatibility between systems, winzip may be the 
best option.

Not sure if this has changed with sp2 as the thread on the other group 
went back a few months.
