Ok finally was able to try this...I sshd onto the Mac with OS X leopard and used the unzip command. Here is the output:
$ unzip -v Kodak\ Pictures.zip
Archive: Kodak Pictures.zip
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
note: Kodak Pictures.zip may be a plain executable, not an archive
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of Kodak Pictures.zip or
Kodak Pictures.zip.zip, and cannot find Kodak Pictures.zip.ZIP, period.
And then trying zip -F:

zip error: Unexpected end of zip file (Kodak Pictures.zip)
And then finally based on the suggestion of in another post about PKWARE...I downloaded the an application from their website called zip reader. I installed in on a PC and surprisingly it extracted it!
However, all the extracted images are zero bytes in length :(
I even tried using 7z and it just crashes on me....
I will now have my family copy the zip file to an external HD and take it over to the Mac Store to see what their "Geniuses" can do..

The file-roller you are talking about here...does it actually browse the zip file without extracting it?
