In the stickied thread at the top of this forum you will see this thread. It will give you general info on installing. For more detail we need to know your distro and what you want to install (and what format it comes in).

Hello raven, welcome to LQ. What distribution are you using (e.g. centos, fedora, pclinuxos, ubuntu, mandriva etc.)?
