Thanks for the info, I didn't realize that I had to run the shell, was 
porting some PHP code and figured it was similar.
Anyway, I did the concatenation with two filestreams and it works fine.

int readCount=0;
byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
FileStream stubstream = new FileStream(newSFXFilename, FileMode.Append);
FileStream zipstream = new FileStream(zipfilename, FileMode.Open);
while ((readCount = zipstream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)) != 0)
          stubstream.Write(buffer, 0, readCount);
