Did you ask for help during this process? If not, did you use the
automatic bootstrapping flag in build process. Which zip file are
you actually referring to. People bootstrap D on relatively wacky
platforms fairly regularly so if you didn't ask for help you
should ask now.
Also you ask for longer documentation - there are several books
about D, did you try them? If not then there's what you're
looking for. Ali Cehreli wrote a book teaching D from scratch,
it's very good.
