Thanks for downloading Django.
-To install it, make sure you have Python 2.3 or greater installed. Then run this command:
+To install it, make sure you have Python 2.3 or greater installed. Then run

-python setup.py install
+ python setup.py install
+
+Note this requires a working Internet connection if you don't already have the
+Python utility "setuptools" installed.
+
+AS AN ALTERNATIVE, you can just copy the entire "django" directory to Python's
+site-packages directory, which is located wherever your Python installation
+lives. Some places you might check are:
+
+ /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.4)
+ /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.3)
+ C:\\PYTHON\site-packages (Windows)
+
+This second solution does not require a working Internet connection; it
+bypasses "setuptools" entirely.
For more detailed instructions, see docs/install.txt.
