[AUCTeX-devel] Windows Installation Troubles

The emacs-AUCTeX suite has been highly recommended to me, but I am having trouble getting through step 2 here.

It is written on the aforementioned link that: The contents of the ZIP archive are not prefixed, so make sure they align with the Emacs installation. The location of thesite-lisp directory might serve as an indication. Of course this requires that the path names in the ZIP archive are used when unpacking. 

That seemed mysterious, what should site-lisp indicate? What does it mean to align with the Emacs installation. I was going to to ignore it and just extract the AUCTeX files to emacs-24.2 on my desktop but then, after downloading I get the warning: 

"This destination already contains a folder named 'site-lisp'. If any files have the same names, you will be asked if you want to replace those files. Do you still want to merge the folder created on with this one?"

I am fairly certain that overwriting emacs native site-lisp folder will cause me problems, so I've decided to email you as recommended in the AUCTeX manual.

Thank you for all your help in advance.
