Then you need to open the installation file in your browser and it will give you instructions on how to install the MOD.
There are a couple of easy edits to a couple of files and then some uploads.

Not necessarily.
The MOD instructions will tell you what files to edit and how.
There are also a few files to upload to various places. All the files in the mods root folder.

Thanks for the info. But still not getting any joy. Here is what I have done:

Uploaded Ad Management 1.0.8 folder to public_html/forum/ad management
used domainname.co.uk/forum/ad management/install.xml
Modified the pages as requested:
forum/includes/functions.php
forum/styles/prosilver/template/overall_footer.html
forum/styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html
forum/styles/prosilver/template/viewtopic_body.html

Uploaded above files to appropriate folders.
moved the contents of root folder to public_html/forum/
created a banner folder for the images in public_html
added an advert in the ACP checked the Ad Enabled

Made sure the code is correct for the ad to be listed and image found
<A href="http://www.arboleaspropertyshop.com//">
<img src="http://www.arboleas.co.uk/banners/aps.gif" border=0></a>

Still no joy.

Helllppppp Please. this is doing my head in for what should be an easy task :( :(
