As Lt_hawkeye said, you need to be far more specific.

You need to tell us what you're trying to install, or, at the very least, what format the mod is in. Is the mod one .scd file? Is it simply a zip containing a foldername and several files?

If it's a compiled .scd file (which is basically a zip file anyway), just drop it into your SupremeCommander/Gamedata directory. If not, extract the contents of the zip (including the primary folder) to your SupremeCommander/Mods directory. If you don't have one, make one. Make sure that all the files were extracted using full paths. (Example C:/SupremeCommander/Mods/Billy'smod, and that folder would contain all the mod files and directories).

Unzip the folder and extract the files to either your mods folder in your SupCom directory if it is a folder achive (the mod that is), or drop it in your Gamedata folder (once again in your SupCom directory) if it is a file with a .scd file extension.

Activate the mod ingame through the Mod Manager. Be sure to check that the mod is compatible with your current game version.

Personal opinions are endorsed by me.
