ingo,
I tried two unzip versions from the UnZip site and neither worked. I tried a
second download on my primary machine, but I got the cached copy from my
browser. Moving to a back up computer where I was certain I would not get a
cached copy, I pulled yet another copy. None worked.

On a third computer I brought up a news reader and pulled a another copy.
This copy unziped fine with a whole series of unzip programs on linux,
Windows XP and all three computers!

Finally, on the computer where I used a news reader to grab a working copy,
I used the web newsgroup view to download and replace the working zip file.
This web version of the file was corrupted.

My conclusion is that the web version of this file is corrupted or gets
corrupted during the download. Not sure what to do with this information,
but perhaps it will be of some help to somebody somewhere.

Thanks again.
Reagards, Bill P.
