I'm actually using "Windows Services for Unix" (SFU) for my NFS server.  
However, I was unzipping the files using WinZIP.

Since I do not have access to the server room this early in the morning, I 
tried the C shell that comes with SFU.  I did the gzcat and tar in the C 
shell, loaded the kernel and typed go.  After a minute or so, I finally got 
a prompt!  Yeah!

Thanks to everyone that responded or even thought about this problem.
