Using POI

Why can't I find the POI JAR file?

I am trying to figure out how to use MPXJ.  The documentation says this:

The MPP functionality depends on the POI library produced by the Apache Jakarta project. In order to use the MPP functionality the POI JAR file must be present on your classpath. A copy of this library can be found in the lib directory of the distribution.

I have downloaded the following zip files:
poi-bin-2.0-RC2-20040102.zip
poi-1.8.0-dev-20020919.zip

I have read tons of documentation and clicked on every link.  Yet, I can't seem to find the right JAR file.  In fact, I can't even figure out what "lib directory" or "distribution" is being referred to above.  Do I need to build the JAR file?

Thank you from a very confused developer,
Patricia
