Aarrgh, that's the problem - it does use compress. Is the distinction
between .z and .Z not an established standard? I'm guessing there's
not a Haskell interface for compress.

I could just tell the OS to start a gzip process, but I need to be
able to build it here on my Linux box, and run it on various MS
machines. Seems like the best approach at this point might be to
require everyone (only 3 people) to uncompress the data onto the hard
drive first, then go from there.

Thanks for all the help!
