I downloaded this file three times.
Three different GZunzippers including WinZip9
all report that all three of the DLs are corrupt
on my WXPpro system.

I downloaded 3 times. Not a likely DL problem.
I tried 3 different unpackers.

What to do ???

# gunzip -vt boot2pup.img.gz
boot2pup.img.gz: OK

see: http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=52

there is a zipped version of the file there, which Windows will probably be happier with

There is a procedure at

http://www.goosee.com/puppy/boot2pup.htm

which I followed exactly.

Step 3 says "download this file"

This link is where I downloaded the file 3 times using 3 different names.

All WIN GZunarchivers report all 3 files to be bad.

Did you right click on it and select download, or left click, see a bunch of (apparently) random characters and then download? I have heard that has caused problems for some people. You need to right click on the link and select ¨save target as¨ instead.

I verified the file also - it is fine.

Just need to gunzip it. Probably the problem is with the Windows archiving utilities.

There is a DOS version of gzip attached to this post, if you can't do it in Linux.

Unzip it to a temp directory and read the instructions. You can use it in a DOS shell in a 32 bit environment, or in real DOS mode.
gzip.zip
Description 
zip

 Download 
Filename  gzip.zip 
Filesize  114.52 KB 
Downloaded  314 Time(s)
