    That just means not to put it into any folders, put it directly on the card. That isn't nessecary for most people though, I've never had a problem installing any zips and they have all been in folders

    When you download something from a browser (Dolphin, Browser, Firefox, etc) It normally saves it in the \downloads folder, of either your sdcard\downloads, or sdcard\browser\downloads. It depends, if you are wanting to get a .zip to the \sdcard (this is what we all call "ROOT" of sd card) then get a file manager like Astro, or Root Explorer.

    I'm sure all browsers will let you but I know dolphin hd will let you change your download path, so you can change it from the download folder to the root of the card. It doesn't matter if your rooted, you can still put stuff on the root of the card, but most zips need root and bootstrap recovery to install
