How do I install fluxbox?

Is it possible to download Fluxbox to a second computer then transfer the file to the other computer via cd?

I am having a hard time to get my linux boxes up with ppp. Too many winmodems., and having difficulties gettin ppp to work with my ISP.

If i did it via cd.

I would just unxip flux?
Then what after I uncompressed flux?
Install/compile? (How?)

I am using ARCH Linux.
I have a hp pavilion n3390 laptop.

I couldn't find flux on the box. I could only get blackbox working and some other wm.

No Flux and no KDE.

Sure you can transfer Fluxbox to another PC. Just download it from here, you can download addional packages, burn them and transport.
Check out the documentation from the Fluxbox site, you'l find there how to install it

Good luck!

More specifically in the docs:
This covers everything you need to install and run fluxbox, except configuring the XFree86 system.
