Autodownload Zip files

Hello,
In my webpage (created by FrontPage 2003) I have included a link to a zip-file.
When testing thing page clicking on the link opens a new webpage in folder-style giving me all the files included in the zip.
Instead of this new page I like to have the Windows download window.
Is it a problem with my html code or do I have to do something when creating the zip file.
Thanks
Frank

It basically depends on how the user has his / her settings set up.

I am assuming you have the link like: <a href="zip/myfile.zip">Download Now</a> ?
