Zip revisited

There are lot of posts on it but couldn't find a definite answer I am
looking for,
1. I found the approach to use J# lib to compress and uncompress
files. But it seems if I compress the file with this tool then I am
unable to open the zip file using regular pkzip/winzip.
2. One other problem is that J# lib is available only in .Net 2.0 and
is not available in 3.5 (I know what you think, still it is an issue
for me on brand new machines)
3. I found the code sample under sdk 2.0 but it goes the same way, it
stores the data in .xip format that can not be opened using the
regular unzipping tools.
I would like to know is there a way I can zip/unzip using C# libraries
(using 3.5 framework) that can be zipped/unzipped with freely
available tools and vice-versa.

I do not want to use any of the existing commercial dlls. Any
pointers??

Thanks,

Have previous posts recommended SharpZipLib? It is free and works great in
my opinion.

If you looked into it, what didn't you like about it?

It works fine for me.

3.5 should not remove any 2.0 stuff.

Both the J# stuff and #ZipLib works fine.
