gzip stores a checksum for the compressed data ('crc' is 'cyclic
redundancy check') and the value it has is wrong. Again, this means you
have a bad copy of the compressed package.

May I check that you downloaded the file in binary mode and not ASCII
mode? If you're using command-line FTP then it probably defaulted to
binary mode but to be sure you might want to type 'binary' before you

I know that's a long shot, but I at least don't have any other ideas.
