Hi mike, firstly you need to download the file and then you need to unpack it. They are usually compressed to ZIP files which can be natively opened by windows however if it is a RAR archive then I would recommend 7Zip to unzip it.

After you have the files uncompressed then you need to copy all the files (it should be a BZN, BMP and sometimes a TXT file) into the /BZN directory in your armada II installation (which is usually c:/program files/activision/armada II/bzn)

As Freyr eplains, it is very easy to do. Once you get the hang of it have a look at downloading a map pack. One to go for is the "Triple map pack" from Trip. It is filled with a large number of diverse maps to keep you happy. Also look at the link above to the a2.upgrades site. Download this to inhance the graphics and ships in your maps. You wont be disapointed.

As Freyr said, use programs like RAR and 7Zip to unzip the archive. To do this, make sure the file is downloaded. As soon as it has finished, double click on it and press the "Extract All Files" option.

Once done, follow Freyr's instructions on how to install the map itself.

Right click on the folder and then use extract to unzip the folder. That should do the trick.
