The version of the notebook.sty file in the .zip file replaces the one that sits in SystemFiles\IncludeFiles\TeX > 4.

It _does_ install notebook2e.sty. The file sits in the deeper down in the directory tree. SystemFiles\IncludeFiles\TeX\texmf\tex\latex\wolfram The files that are used with LaTeX 2e sit in a TeX directory standard tree to make it easier to copy the files to your existing TeX installation. -- P.J.
