1. Unzip the contents to a folder on your primary hard drive, i.e. C:\MySite\.

 

2. Open Dreamweaver and go to Site > New Site and enter your site folder's physical location or hit the Folder icon to browse for it.

3. Click on SERVERS tab and enter your server's log-in credentials and Root Directory.  If unsure, ask your hosting provider what settings to use.

4. Save settings and open the Files Panel (F8).

 

Hope that helps.  Post back if you have more questions.
