First of all, itīs LHA not iha Welcome here ....

You have to extract those files and start the program with no extension on the Amiga Shell those are the Amiga executables !

You may have to run some extracted demos etc from hard disk.

For a guide about setting up a HD with workbench, please see:

Or you could launch them from the RAM DISK, which is preferrable, although demos usually expect an A500, so there may be problems.
