Compressing existing files to new zip using FZip

I'm trying to have users select several files from their file system, then take those files and add them to a new zip file. As far as I can tell, there is no way to do this using FZip. I thought maybe I could load the files then zip them, but I'm not sure how to go about doing that. Ideas?

Using Winrar instead? possible?
Hi there, just want to clarify, you want to build in a file compression functionality into your flash file or do you just want to use the default tool on the clients machine to make a zip of that file?
