1. Download the file with name ending in .xz. It is about 85Mbyte
2. Decompress that file to get one with name ending in .img. It is about 4 Gbyte.
3. Write that to the SD card

Which of the above are you having a problem with?

When i download it it doesn't seem to be a zip file. rasp-sd-4gb-sap6-5.102.img.xz is the file I'm downloading.

xz is another form of file compression, and if something like win-zip won't open it then 7-zip (or the Mac equivalent of it) will.
