Well, the only way is to unpackage the files first and then search for them.  :)

With Windows, a tool like WinZip, PowerArchiver, or (in XP) the enhanced cabinet viewer, will open ZIPs and let you examine and extract the content files.

In DOS, you use PKZIP to unpack the ZIP to a directory, then view it with DIR or a filebrowser.
