Assuming you're running the latest official release:

The "easiest" way to do this is to copy out all the .uqm and .zip files to another directory, put the old installer there, and reinstall from that directory, this time selecting the remixes.  It will pop up little dialogue boxes claiming various things are already installed, if they are.

The other way is to right-click the "Ur-Quan Masters" shortcut inside the Start Menu, and add

--addon remix

To the command line options as per the instructions you found.  "arguments" or "command line options" will be one of the fields on the Properties form.  Don't use quotation marks on them, even though the .EXE file will probably have them.

I used the first method you described, it worked.  I tried the second method, and even though i put the --addon remix in the shortcut it kept giving me some error when I tried to apply the new settings.  All I did is download the most recent version of UQM, (which I already had installed) put the remixes in a separate folder and installed in the same directory that UQM was already installed.  The remixes work now.  Thank you a lot! ;D
