you need the unzip(1)
NAME unzip - list, test and extract compressed files in a ZI
DESCRIPTION unzip will list, test, or extract files from a ZIP
archive, commonly found on MS-DOS systems.The default
behavior (with no options) is to extract into the current
directory (and subdirectories below it) all files from the
specified ZIP archive. A companion program, zip(1), creates
ZIP archives; both programs are compatible with archives
created by PKWARE's PKZIP and PKUNZIP for MS-DOS, but in many
cases the program options or default behaviors differ.
The box said "requires windows 95 or better"
So I installed Linux!
