How to apply patch to Solaris for Intel

Can anyone help!!,

I've recently installed Solaris for Intel on a standalone box to have a "dabble" with. I want to install the patch 106542-17 so I can then install Oracle 8.1.6. The standalone machine does not have Internet access, and when downloading the patch to my PC running NT 4.0 the file is downloaded as a zip file. I can FTP the zip file across to the Solaris box but Solaris presumably has not concept of a zip file so what can I do to get this patch installed?

Any help would be very appreciated,

Dave Leach
