Dose XP have software to unzip bz2 compressed files?
Downloaded GParted for creating/moving/deleting disk partitions.

I need to unzip it, and its a bz2. Does Windows XP have a decpression
routine that I can use to unzip a BZ2 file?

Hi K Cav,
No, XP cannot extract bz2 compressed archives. You need
WinRAR (Free evaluation version available google WinRAR) to extract the
files or 7Zip (also free) can also create archives with bz2 compression.
