gunzip: crc errors


Here's the problem:
I have a CD that has a .gz file. I can gunzip this successfully on a solaris box and also on a Mandrake Linux box. But when I use gunzip on my linux box, it complains about crc errors. Is it possible that my gunzip is corrupted? But then I am able to unzip some files. The problem seems to be intermittent. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

cannot be the cd driver...

...because I copied the files to my hard disk and compared the checksum before unzipping it.
