You can either copy the the zip file over to your hard drive and unzip, or you can "cd" to the target directory and issue the unzip command from there:

cd /home/playa
unzip /mnt/cdrom/

This should extract the file in the present working directory (PWD)

If you are to lazy to use the command line, try mc (midnight commander)

type in the console: mc

then go on your .zip file, press return
then you can select all your files in your zip files with the "*" key, and you can copy it in another
directory of your choice, exactly as like in nc (norton commander) for dos.
