it depends on how Unix "Zipped" the file but probably yes.

Yes - but it's a commercial product!

There is pkWare (free): http://www.pkware.com/downloads/zipreader/home
or CamUnzip (free). http://www.camunzip.com/
or FreeZip: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/

and a lot more.

All of them can unzip ...
