lwjgl-1.0beta3.zip is the main file - unpack and test
the optional package contains fmod and devil bindings
the docs package is basically javadoc
and the applet test is a new package that tests applet support

Another question. with the testing. how do you do that... I extracted the main .zip directly to the C: drive how would i type that out in CMD?

Look in the doc subdirectory. There is a README file there with the instructions for you.

Yes, it is a text document. It just doesn't have an extension. You can open it fine with any text editor, such as Notepad. Double-clicking it won't work, you actually have to open it via File-Open in your text editor. File extensions don't dictate the contents of a file.

You asked how to type the command to run the tests on the command line. It's right there in the README. CD to C:\lwjgl-1.0beta4 and execute the java command as shown in the README. As long as either a JRE or JDK bin directory is on your PATH, you should be good to go. I don't know what else to tell you.
