You have mentioned both BF2 and BF2142

1) Install 2142. If installing via the EA downloader, the patch is included, stop here and go play 2142. Else continue on to 2.
2) Install the patch.
Method A: Using the EA downloader. Start up the EA downloader and log in. When there is not "a problem with the download service" I will update this with the details. I believe it's just a case of selecting the patch and clicking "install".
Method B: Using a zipped file download. Download the file, NZBattlefield hosts the file:
Link to NZ Battlefield Hosted Patch 1.01 (http://2142.nzbattlefield.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=2)
The safest way (IMO) to download the file is to use either Firefox's built in downloading or a download manager (such as Free Download Manager). After downloading the file, right click on it and click "Extract here" to extract the .exe file (I'm assuming the use of WinRAR as the extracting program). Quit out of 2142 if you have it up and running, failure to do so will cause you to lose BF2142.exe when the patch runs. Double click the .exe file to start the install process.
Done. Go play Battlefield 2142.
illerskiller, by the looks of what you've written there, either your download is corrupted or you need to use something other than winzip/windows extractor for your extraction. Have you tried WinRAR?
