Thank you for your answer.

From Android, get a file explorer like ASTRO or Estrong, browse to the file - tap on it, it'll ask if you want to install it - ok and you're done.

You can find it on the Market.
Look at your apps - there's a Market app - go in it cklick the magnifying glass to search and type ASTRO, it'll give you the search results tap on astro click install at the left bottom corner, it'll download it and install it, then click open and you have a file manager.

Don't know about kbatman99's problem, though, that's weird...

Probably the .apk is corrupt. I've got the same message when I tried a corrupt file. Downloaded it again and it worked.
