In general, if you have forge installed right, you need to drop the zip file (unextracted) into your mods folder. It does depend on the mod a little bit, so follow the particular installation instructions of the mod you are using.


You usually can just put the .zip file into the /mods folder. If the mod doesn't load properly, than unzip the file and look for a .jar file. If all else fails, look at the mod's READ-ME file or the mod's web page.
