You are doing fine... From DOS you can do a:
pkzip -rp zipname
to recoursively zip all your files and then unzip them into their correct
directory structure by doing a:
pkunzip -d zipname
Just tried it an it works great and even keeps empty directories for ya. I
am using pkzip/unzip for DOS version 2.04g...
