10.5: Expand compressed files on read-only media System 10.5
Try opening a zip, gzip, or other compressed file on an unwritable volume such as a CD or read-only disk image. Instead of giving you an error (as happened in 10.4) saying "Volume is not writable," OS X 10.5 will expand the archive into your Downloads folder.

It's always worked for me on Tiger - it expands into the downloads folder (as set in Safari).
