Why a waste of 2 hours? I am going to assume that since it is a .zip file you downloaded, that your platform is Windows.

1)Install the program.

2)Open your c:\mysql directory, then open the \bin directory and you will see a file called winmysqladmin. -- click it. It will start up a GUI admin screen. Enter a username / password for it. It WILL automatically create the file for you. -- DONE
I just had the same problem, so I came to this forum to find out what to do. All the chatter about how it is not part of the distro, then you come on and say click, click, DONE. I did what you said and it still did not work. I am a pretty fast typer, so I will finish with the my.cnf file. Have a good one...

Oh before I forget, for all those who want to save some time - here is the file per page 25-26 :D
# Example mysql config file.
# Copy this file to c:\my.cnf to set global options
# One can use all long options that the program supports.
# Run the program with -help to get a list of available options

# This will be passed to all mysql clients

# Here is entries for some specific programs
