I can so relate to you. I have started the tutorial over and over just to get to the correct place to save the files. Here is what I have learned so far:
Save the original download to the desktop.
Extract those files. I left them right in the same folder...might have been a mistake.
When you 'Save' your Getting Started site, don't save it right into the original downloaded folder, as that is the unextracted folder, but choose the second 'make-style-web-page' folder to save it in. This is where the unzipped files are. This is as far as I have gotten and it has taken me only 2 hours to get to this frackin spot
