The "wrong" instructions appear to come from this page:

http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/install/

Those instructions are really for Django core developers. Anyone not
actually working on Django itself should be looking here instead:

Agreed. I don't understand why the download file would be a "winrar"
file, but I guess this is just Windows getting confused about the file
type.
