(1) in that case you'd have to install gzip instead of bzip which does 
not change the problem
(2) gzip operates on one file (pipe) while zip is able to create an 
archive of files (so, zip is a replacement for tar+gzip, but you know 
that -)

btw, on windows using winrar will solve most compression/archive problems


 (a happy user of zip, although the public version is inferior to the 
good old pkzip one because that one had better selective zipping options 
built in)
