Tips for working with "Zip" file archives

1.  EXTRACT THE APPLICATION FROM THE ZIP FILE:

After the download is complete and the file is saved to your computer you
need to expand (open) the "Zip" archive file. Zip files are
very common archive method for the Internet. They allow several files to be 
compressed and transferred as one small file. Many computers already have
utility programs (such as WinZip or StuffIt Expander) for extracting these
types if files. If you have such a utility, use it to expand the archive.

If you don't have the necessary program for expanding a ZIP archive,
you can download a freeware or shareware program from one of these web
sites:

2.  INSTALLING THE APPLICATION ON TO YOUR PALM COMPUTING DEVICE:

Once you have extracted the files from the Zip archive,then you need to get
the application into your Palm device. Open the Palm Desktop program that
came with your Palm Device and read the instructions for installing
applications onto your Palm device. Basically, you just need to put the Palm
into the docking cradle and select "install" from the Palm Desktop or the 
Palm Install program. It will ask you where the application file is. Browse 
to the archive you just extracted in step 1 and find the file that ends
with ".prc". Once the installation is finished then just hit the 
"applications" button on your Palm Device and the newly installed 
application should be listed there. 


If you've tried all of these steps and are still having problems then the
application (PRC) file may have been damaged during transfer. Try
re-downloading the file and re-installing the application.
