Gsview on windows reads the .ps.gz files directly.  There is no need to
unzip them.

It's a gzipped file that expands into a ps file. On my Mac running  
Leopard, Stuffit does the expansion and Preview does the viewing. You  
need a utility on whatever (unspecified) OS you are running that will  
un-gzip it, and then you need a Postscript viewer. If that OS happens  
to  be a flavor of Windows, then I know from experience that  
Ghostscript and its associated viewer, Ghostview, will work for the  
second half of the process. Google is your friend. I suspect you need  
UnRAR, or something along those lines for the decompression step.
