You must use gunzip to decompress the gzipped files.

    The file mgnet.bib contains all of the entries sorted in alphabetical order by authors and years. Some people have reported that their BibTeX programs cannot handle mgnet.bib without breaking it up into at least 4 pieces. This is due to mgnet.bib containing over 30,000 lines of text. Do not break it up unless you have to.
