What patch, and where did you get it?

v 1.61, http://games.ea.com/official/battlefield/1942/us/gamedemo.jsp?state=010010

Did you download both files and unpack the tar.gz?
As far as I read that page, you should back-up the old binaries, init.com file and checksum, then replace them with the downloads.

i dont get it what do i do first?
ftp://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/misc/bf1942-update-1.61.tar.gz is a compressed archive, it needs unpacking. In there are "just the binaries and the changed init.con file".
ftp://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/misc/bf1942-1.61_bfv-1.21.md5.txt is a checksum, that the game uses to verify the game hasn't been tampered with (which it has, hence the new checksum)
Move or copy the files to where the originals are/were on your computer.
