    .dmg should just open after you drag it into a folder. What does it do exactly?

    Anything that ends with .dmg is a DiskImage, all you need to do is double click on it, and it will mount as a drive on the desktop. Anything that ends with .zip will automatically decompress when you double click on it, into the same folder as the .zip file (so a .zip file on the desktop will decompress on to the desktop).

    In short, double click both of them and they should just work.

    If this is not working, I'd be worried about the files being corrupted somehow, as neither file requires 3rd party programs for the OS to deal with them.

    Those error messages mean that the zip file ORIGINALLY was compressed into two seperate files possibly on two seperate CDs for storage space's sake. The way a zip file works when split into 2 files is the zip archive's TOC (table of contents) is integrated into the second file. If you don't have the second file, you can't open the .zip file.
