When you open the .jar, you're then in the root, meaning the top 'level' which contains all the other folders and files.

How do you install a mod for Minecraft 1.3.1?

You download the mod and open it with a archiving program, Win-rar is what I use but there is also 7-zip, then you have to find your .minecraft folder. You can find it by searching %appdata% in your start menu. Open the .minecraft folder then open the bin folder. Inside the bin folder, there is the .jar. Open it with a archiving program. Look at the mod. If there is a Readme file, open it and follow what it says to do. Also, there is usually the instructions on the page that you found the mod. If there isn't a Readme folder, then open the mod with the archiving program and copy all of the .classes into the .jar or your .minecraft folder. Caution: If you get a black screen when opening minecraft after installing the mod, then it is because you didn't delete the META-INF folder in your minecraft jar. Hope this was helpful. Ask me if there is any other problems. -Aiya
