Sounds like maybe you didn't flag the zips as binary (-kb) in your
repository?  Windows XP would probably try to add CR characters as
files are downloaded because Windows uses CR/LF for line endings
whereas Linux uses just LF.

The rest of this response is not likely to apply, but I'll write it
just in case:  I've seen one XP system that refused to unpack a .zip
file containing actual CVS repository files (ending in ,v).  More
accurately, it would unpack the zip, but only the non-repo files would
show up unpacked; the repo files never came out.  I never saw an error
message either though, so I bet that's a totally different issue from
yours...that and I think you mean "download" to mean retrieving
versions, not whole repository files anyway.
