[sw-l] left-handed or right-handed?

Thanks for the info, but when I try to unpack SSS-2004-png.zip I get this
error message:

"Message WZ50

"An error occurred opening, writing to, closing, or deleting the specified
file.  Possible causes include a misspelled filename, a full disk, a
read-only or locked disk, or a read-only or locked file.  The operation in
progress will be aborted.  Another dialog box with more specific information
may be displayed.

"This message may also be displayed because of an invalid archive.  For
example, if an archive is damaged (possibly due to line noise while
downloading from a BBS) it may contain invalid pointers or corrupted header

The offending file is 02-05-014-01-03-04.png

After this, every file gives the same error message.

This happens after unzipping 85% of the archive - which takes  long time!
I'm unzipping to my hard disk, which I wouldn't think would give any
problems with space.

I'm using Windows 98 - any ideas?
