I assume you mean .lmp files.  (short for lump)
If you are on a Windows platform, I recommend prboom-plus.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/prboom-plus
You will need the applicable game data Iwads to playback a demo.

There is a frontend for this tool, but I don't recall where that is at.
You can playback a demo from the command-line in your prboom directory.
eg.:  prboom-plus -iwad doom2.wad -playdemo map22.lmp

To answer your question:  
START -> RUN dialog box
enter cmd and hit return

but you probably want to use another solution:
I personally edit batch files (command-line scripts in an executable file format).  easy to modify and prevents any typos or confusion.

I recommend
http://www.doomworld.com/vb/doom-speed- ... tch-demos/
download
http://www.doomworld.com/sda/dwdemo/lmpwatch.zip
and prboom and you can play a demo automatically.

for more assistance.

ok i have downloaded this version of prboom now. but when i try to open it he says: "IdentifyVersion: IWAD not found" what does that mean? probably because i use use zdoom to run doom2 on windows xp? or is there another way to run doom2 on windows xp?

You need to start it with the Iwad.  (this is a the doom2.wad file... the registered game files, eg. the thing you bought when you bought the game).
prboom-plus -iwad doom2.wad -playdemo lv01-005.lmp

forgot to say that there is an order for initializing the iwads in the same directory... if you only have one in there then you are good to go.

each file has a special random number, so you cannot watch seperate demos in the same session.
You can load them one after another in a batch file, but that is just watching them one right after another and not continuously.

there are movie runs (multiple level runs, usually full episodes), if you would like to see more than one level in a demo.

as Myk H. pointed out on the DW forums, you probably do not have the real version 1.9 doom2.wad file.
select the file in WindowsExplorer, right-click on it and select properties, the file should be 14,604,584 bytes in size.
The doom patches (to patch an earlier released version of doom2.wad to version 1.9) are many places on the internet, including the official DOOM ftp archives and idsoftware's site.

I sent you a private message on this board.
Start button -> Run dialog box
enter cmd and hit return
cd to your doom directory and type in the name of the patch.
there will be an onscreen error if it fails.
I've never patched it in winXP, so I don't know what the particular issue is.
