I was wondering if someone could tell me how to get this working? what do I need to do, etc.

it depends if you use WP its firly simple, before WP 2.5 you could simply doing from within setting in newer versions you'll need plug in . I use GZIP Output by Austin Matzko.

there are also other options like simply adding code to your htaccess:

# compress the files
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml text/css text/javascript application/x-javascript
# removes some bugs
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
Header append Vary User-Agent

I do have to admit I am not expert on this topic. When I design my pages I always take load time into consideration so that speed is ussually not an issue.

If you are still unsure you may want to :
look at - betterexplained DOT com/articles/how-to-optimize-your-site-with-gzip-compression/

or code.google DOT com/speed/

or contact your webhost as each webhost might have their servers differently configured.

good luck
depends too much on the hosting, if they are cpanel based and are upto date, there is something about website optimize in the cpanel, just turn that on and your set
