Thanks for the suggestions but that's now what I'm looking for. Any way of unziping tar.gz files will not work for Windows machines. The issue is not whether you can compress it or not. The issue has to do with incompatible line endings. If you try to run a tar.gz file on Windows it is likely to cause problems because of the line endings.
WinZip 8 will handle CR/LF conversion on tar files automatically. I use Win ME & have run FOP successfully ...
