Either use one of the "mod loaders" like MCPatcher, ModLoader, etc, to load the mod for you or follow the instructions of the mod maker. Some are different on how they are supposed to be installed or what other mods they are compatible with.

To INSTALL a mod, you go to run and type &APPDATA% and click .minecraft then bin and open minecraft.jar with winrar or 7zip.

You need the downloaded version to do this.
