Installin .zip files


OK
I downloaded drives off of broadcom for linux(i386, IA64, and x86-64) is the one i downloaded.

I know how to install rpm and tar formats but this is in .zip form
When i click the download i see the rpm and tar formats

How do i unzip or if i need to unzip this file to extract the rpm and tar formats.

Using RedHat 9

Please Help And THANK YOU

unzip </path/to/file>.zip

I'd doublecheck that you actually downloaded a Linux program, though...usually zip files are used only for DOS/Windows archives (usually)
