    There are several tools on Macs that can uncompress a RAR file, like Stuffit Expander.

    But to create a Zip file on Vista, you can right-click on the folder containing all the files you want to compress and select "Send To" and choose "Compressed File" or something like that - I'm not on a Vista machine right now and am typing from memory.
