On my 1st installation using a zip archive with zlib compression, I received this error when going to page 2:

Warning: gzuncompress() [function.gzuncompress]: data error in /home/.server/user/Domain.name/install.php on line 560
Failed decompressing the archive

Rather than piddle around with trying to interpret the error all day I loaded the zip archive without zlib, and on installation I encountered this error when going to page 2:

Archive did not pass checksum test, CORRUPT ARCHIVE!
If you've encountered this error it means that you've:
downloaded a corrupt archive
uploaded the archive in ASCII and not BINARY mode
your FTP Server/Decompression software/Operating System added un-needed cartrige return (' ') characters to the archive, resulting in archive corruption.

Obviously I did not use a corrupt archive since both were new downloads, so I moved to the next error uploading as (ASCII/BINARY).

Since I use FileZilla as an FTP client, I changed the "transfer type" by clicking transfer> transfer type> and selecting Binary as opposed to Auto (which appears to be the default mode for FileZilla).

And program uploaded and installed without error!
Conclusion: use Binary to upload and transfer installation and critical files (slower but better) and I like it when the Developers incorporate trouble shooting information into the error codes...... I like it a lot!
