GZIP or TAR to restore

Hello,

I'm a unix beginner and would like to upload directory tree
from windows 98 to Unix (free BSD).
I would like to pack the windows file in zip or tar,
move it to the unix and then unpack it.

I need help in the following:
-what utility to use in W98.
-The exact syntaxes on the TAR or GZIP or other to restore on the unix.

Please advice

Rami

Hi...
Search download.com for the following, it seems to do both
tar and gzip, although I haven't used it myself.
"Maquisistem Tar-Gzip Compress"
on the unix box....
gzip -d ./file.tar.gz
gives a file called file.tar
tar xvf ./file.tar
extracts the files.
regards

I believe BSD has supports Windows partitions, so
you can simply mount the windows partition from BSD and
then copy it. If not, you can use some program like
pkzip or winzip to pack the files in Windows and then
use the unzip utility in BSD to unpack it.

unzip is a unix utility that can "unzip" winzip archives.
Get it at:
