ZIP files with password

hi there

i am facing this new problem.
whenever i extract my ZIP files in linux, it reports "an error has occured " during extraction
now that error turns out to be because of password.
the file is password protected,but it does not even prompt for passowrd as it prompts in winzip in M$

so how do we go in this

i am using ARK V 2.1.9 in FC2
