Thanks for all the responses.
I tried doing several things. I put the files in sysdir path the sysdir path and adopath.
I copied all the files using the browser and then used notepad to save them with the relevant extensions (choosing the all files options).
Finally I created a package file and a toc file with the relevant infromation and tried to install them through the help menu (user written software...). This way, I get a message that the software has been installed but when I run the commands, I get the following error messages
1. with ivreg2
              gt;1 invalid name
2. with xtabond2 and outreg
                unrecognized command:  merge
I will really appreciate any further suggestions on how to fix this problem.
Thanks again,
Jeffry Jacob

	Whilst c:\ado\ is indeed an ado path it has several subdirectories which is where Stata
	looks for the Do-files. and I think it is within hone of these that you want to place the
	relevant files.
	The package ivreg2 is an 'offical' do file from the Stata Journal (3-1), so you shold
	probably place the files in....
	Alternatively you could place the files anywhere you want on your computer and add the
	directory to your system dir (see -man sysdir- for more information)
	Hope that helps
