It seems Amazon is still shipping this title, seperate, for Windows 9x (1, 2) DOS and even for the mac, or as part of the Zork Legacy Collection (only Windows 9x)

Note that Return to Zork runs on ScummVM, so no matter which version you get, you can always play it on all platforms. – sepp2k Jul 15 '10 at 11:01 now has a packaged copy that runs really well, and it is cheap too, $5.99.

You can play Zork I online here:

There are free downloads for Zork I, II, III & The Undiscovered here for Win/Mac (no Z-interpreter required):

Also, the original mainframe version of Zork is available. It still runs on Windows/Mac/Linux, but the content is different from the packaged version of Zork I, II & III. The site describes it as equivalent to Zork I + about half of Zork II + the endgame of Zork III:

EDIT Oh sorry, I just re-read your question and realised you were specifically about Return to Zork. My apologies. I'll leave this here though in case a Zork enthusiast finds it useful.

Indeed, still useful info. – Vyrotek Mar 14 '11 at 3:44

eBay is probably your best bet.
