For most of the entries on my Freeware and Doom 2 Wads pages
you will find two files:
a textfile (filetype .txt) and a zipfile (filetype .zip).
The textfile will give you a description of what can be found in the zipfile.
You may read this to see if you want to download the zipfile or not.
The zipfile is a compressed file. In order to use it, you will have to save
this file on disk and then unpack it. It contains, amongst other files, the
contents of the accompanying textfile.
If you are not familliar with zipfiles, you should do one of the following things:
- Download pk250dos.exe (203 kb).
Execute this program as a DOS command in an empty directory.
It will unpack itself. You will then have a shareware version
of the original PKZIP zip utility for DOS by PKWARE,
with full documentation.

for full information about PKWARE's current zipfile utilities and other products.
- or: Go to http://www.winzip.com/
for WinZip, an alternative zipfile utility.

Do not confuse a zipfile with a zipdisk.
A zipdisk is a high-capacity disk storage medium,
for which you need a special hardware device, called a zipdrive.
More information about zipdisks and zipdrives can be found at
To use zipfiles, however, no special hardware is needed.
