Log into your unix shell.
Download a 'full' or 'minimal' .tar.gz distribution file onto the server/into the shell the talker will run on.
If windows w/cygwin..
Download and install cygwin. Read the instructions here
Run the Cygwin bash shell program, from the Cygwin group in your Start Menu
Download a 'full' or 'minimal' .tar.gz distribution file into this directory
e.g. wget http://www.asteroid-b612.org/ncohafmuta/download/stable/1.4.1/ncoh141-dist-full.tar.gz
Change to the directory where you downloaded the distribution/.tar.gz file, if not the current directory
From the command line, uncompress and untar the distribution with the following:
gzip -d distribution.tar.gz
tar xf distribution.tar
where distribution is the file version you downloaded. e.g. gzip -d ncoh140-dist-full.tar.gz
The distribution will then be in a directory named similar to the file version. i.e. if you downloaded ncoh140-dist-full.tar.gz, the directory would be called ncohafmuta-1.4.0
Change to that directory, (i.e. 'cd ncohafmuta-1.4.0')
Read the documentation file in docs/README.quickstart on how to initially configure, compile, and run the talker. (i.e. 'more docs/README.quickstart')
