So what is it that I would be looking for?

Also, are other compression algorithms like .ARC and .LZH supported?

zip, arc, and lzh originated on DOS systems, so there are certainly DOS utilities for handling them:

ARC: You can use SEA ARC to make them, but most people use pkunpak to extrac them
LZH: LHA (lharc)
ZIP: PKZIP and PKUNZIP (2.04g has worked best for me; I've had issues with 2.50)

Your friendly neighborhood SIMTEL archive, or archive.org, can turn these up.
