What version of Windows are you running?
What compression tools do you have installed?
I am running only stock Windows XP with WinZIP installed. I've tried it on
3 machines at work and mine at home. With IE it always comes out
"...tar.tar". Firefox and Netscape do save it correctly as "...tar.bz2",
and claim it is a WinZip file, but WinZIP can't open it. WinZIP 9 says
As to the comment on "better" compression. We're only saving about 2 meg
here. Look at the 1.3.8400 release, where it was in "tar.gz" and
"tar.bz2". Is 2 meg really all that important in the scheme of
things? It's just a little more than a floppy. Is someone trying to
download over 28.8 bps?
