Ok, well thats a complete mod that you add to your Empire At War Game data > data folder you can then run Empire At war as normal and it will load the Galaxy Divided modded files instead of the default EAW game files.

Copy ALL of the folders you have in the archive into the root of the Data folder as mentioned. You should back up any existing folders already in there before copying over them. This is how I play the game normally :)

But you might find the first option easier ? :)

The better way to play a mod is to put the files into your gamedata > mods folder and play them from there from a BAT file that will launch the modded files. That way you dont risk ruining your proper EAW files.

Nowadays you'll want to just stick it in the "Mods" folder in EaW's Gamedata directory.
