There is native support for the standard inflate / deflate method in the .NET
2.0 Compression namespace. If you want more control, ICSharpCode.SharpZiplib
is an open source library that offers more options and is compatible with the
native Zlib functions.

..NET Framework 2.0 has implementation of zip algorithms, but can't handle
zip files (e.g. read the headers etc)look at the System.IO.Compression
namespace. Another possibility is to use libraries from J# or some third
party zip libraries, like the open source sharpziplib.

I've used sharpziplib and it works well.

Good luck with your project,
