As with all software - the best place to start before doing anything is to read the README.txt file - it pretty much tells you what to do.

- upload the files
- create a db and db user
- install the game
- log in the game and begin set up of the game

If you are a noob - I suggest not downloading any 3rd party modules till at least you are 90% comfortable with how the game works and how to run the game - that alone would take you at least a few weeks. The game has plenty of modules included in the default game to keep you busy for some time to come. When you are familiar wth how everything works, then maybe 3rd party modules you may want to look at to enhance your game.

ahh, you need to open the file you downloaded. If you use a mac, then just double clicking it should work. If you're using windows, you need some like wintar to open it.
