Angry Programs problems (3 of them)

first off i would like to know is there a good compression program (.tar,.gz,...)not .zip) that extracts the items 100% of the time

second i use P2P to transfer large file between me and my friends [(we are working on a video game) and are using a special code plus in the emule i could make it so they were the only ones to get the file] now that i am using linux and i have a real hard time with my gnozip and i am also having a hard time installing xmule( hard time find directory of gkt) and amule [(i have to 'make distclean' for a source dectory) it would be a help if i could get the source directory]

and i would like to know a good free cd burner

Why doesn't zip work?

tar and gzip should be good tho...very easy to use from the command-line.

If you are looking for a GUI archiving tool, I would recommend Ark, it works great, almost like WinZip in Windows... although I believe it needs gzip, tar, bzip etc... installed...

As for a free CD Burner check out either XCDRoast or K3b
