Bernie, there is no simple answer to this.  The files break down like this
(this example is for the DOS version only):

  CT.EXE - program
  RELEASE9.TXT - release notes
  *.DAT - sections files (includes CTY.DAT)
  CT.CFG - default setup (configuration) file
  MULTI.CFG - multi-op setup (configuration file)
( *.CTY - CT8 country files )

There are some other files like OFFICIAL.RAC.  However, if you have all the
above files, you should have a fully functional version of CT.  There is a
complete installation program on the web site which makes this much easier!

There are some tools by K2MM on the web site (follow  the Master Callsign
link). I don't know if they still work.  Maybe someone who has recently merged
.DTA files can reply to the reflector, I'd be happy to add an application note
to the web site describing where to get the tools and how to do it.
