Don't use the Finder's "create archive" thing to start with. zip (the command line utility) works, but you might want to search someplace like MacUpdate looking for a GUI.

Also, turn on invisible files in the Finder (OnyX should do this for you) and delete those .DS_Store files in the folders you want to compress.
