There's a detailed guide to be found here

All you need to do is unzip the file and put the files into the particular map directory you are using. The name of this directory varies depending on which map you are using and which version sometimes.

If you have multiple map directories they need to be placed into each one.

If you are using Windows XP or Vista on your PC, you don't need any extra programs.
Just right-click on the zip archive and select "extract all" from the drop-down menu.
If you are using a Mac, then I think "Stuffit Expander" is liked....
