I don't know the site offhand, but there is a program called Winzip 6.0.  
It includes the extensions: .gz, .tar, .z, and I think .Z

Just thought I would refer you to that.  As soon as I can remember where 
I got it from, I will post it.  But if you can't wait that long, I can E-mail
it to you (providing you don't have a quota)
