If you mean, 'where in the game folders do you put it?", then you put it in the folder marked "Lot Catalog", unzip it, and the CC (if there is any, will load automatically into 'the downloads' folder.
It's usually a very good idea to have a separate 'downloads' folder in your computer so that you can just copy the zipped lot into the game, and not lose the original. Always copy-and make backups if need be.
I usually take the installed zip/Sims2 package and move it into another folder afterward that I created : "installed lots', so that if I need to reinstall it, the lot will still be nearby.
