HELP! Ark error - the utility zip is not in your path

When I try to extract zip with Ark I get an error - the utility zip is not in your path.
What does it mean? Please, help.

btw, what's another way to extract zips?

It sounds like Ark is just a front-end program for zip. You probably do not have the zip rpm installed.

Search in your Mandrake Package Manager for zip and you should find it listed there for install.
