Did you start with the [1]official documentation? Scroll down past the
many download options to "Documentation". There is a shorter Howto that
may be enough, but the full Installation Guide is recommended when you
experience difficulties.

There are notes on the wiki [2]here and [3]here. Searching may find
other info.  --Don
