Most probably you downloaded the file in ASCII mode.  You must use BINARY
mode or ftp will interpret the data and try to convert it to MS style
text.

When the ftp session is established, type the command   binary   to set 
binary mode.   If you are doing it via a web browser, I don't know how 
to set it because I never do that.  (I just use an ftp utility straight up)
But, there must be some way, so check around.
