Problems downloading with Internet Explorer 6? Guidance here
To install and make this work on Windows 7 the user has to be an administrator. Once the software is installed then the user can be demoted back down to a non-admin account and the software works with no problems.
The tar.gz file contains a README.txt and an installation script to run. Installation has worked on Fedora and openSUSE so far. You may also be able to find Mandriva versions at Mandriva International Backports (but check the version is up-to-date). See Non-Ubuntu/Debian Linux Installation
