Here is a useful tip in this situation:

It is possible to write a short note about an flp that gets displayed
when the recepient opens the file.  I think you press F11 to get to it,
but I can't remember, but you can also get to it through Options->Song
Settings.  I'm going from memory here, so forgive me if some of those
details aren't quite correct.

So why is this a big deal?  Well if you have used several freely
available instrument of FX plugins, you can put the download URLs in
this note of all the non-fruity plugins you have used.  Not only will
this help the person who gets the zipped loop package, but it may also
help you one day, in the event you loose your hard disk contents and
have to restore from a backup.  Nothing worse than opening an old song
only to find you don't have half the plugins installed anymore and can't
remember where to get them!  Yes, you could probably turn the results up
pretty quickly using google.com, but its extra hassle.  Its also
advisable to backup your plugin folder(s) just in case you can't get
hold of a favourite free plugin at some stage in the future.
