That's one way of doing it. The drawback is that then you get one big setup
file. Experience has learned that many people have problems downloading such
a file, so we broke it up into smaller parts, so people could download parts
at a time. (we literally got hundreds of mails asking for that) 
Just what experience has taught us...

The DOS version install program (which can, BTW, also be run on linux now
that FreeVision is complete) has a built-in zip extractor. If you want I
can send you the code for this, so you can adapt it. This way you don't need
an external program at all, while avoiding a too large package
