Apologies, there is no install script for the ftp version. This is an
error on our part. For people who have received CDs the install script
does exist, but in reality all it does is copy the entire CD except
for unwanted binaries (for systems which you do not use).

To start running the package you will still need to set the STADENROOT
environment variable and source the $STADENROOT/staden.login or
$STADENROOT/staden.profile script. This simply sets up your PATH plus
a few other useful environment variables.
