step by step guide how to install simplicity linux onto dell dimension 4550

I've downloaded simplicity linux and installed it on my dell dimension 4550. Now i'm stuck. I need guidance to get it off ram and onto the hard disk drive, plus how to do the grub. I'm new to that OS and not familiar with the how to's of getting it up n running. a little help would be appreciated.

Welcome to LQ!
Where are you stuck exactly? Sounds like you have booted a USB "LiveCD" of some kind?
If you only have the one drive on the host (desktop) use sda for grub-install.
If you have more than 1 drive, say so

Lots of hits on <search_engine> for
how to install simplicity linux
Youtube has videos.

Try sda and let us know.
