+If you've never used HomeDir, then just run this from the command line:
+
+ curl -O- http://github.com/docwhat/homedir/raw/master/lib/homedir/setup.py | python
+
+If you don't have curl, then just download [setup.py](http://github.com/docwhat/homedir/raw/master/lib/homedir/setup.py) and run it with your copy of python.
+
+If you already have `~/bin` in your path, then homedir will "Just Work™".
+
+### Previous HomeDir users
+
+If you've using the pre-2.0 version of HomeDir (hosted on trac.gerf.org) then you should back up your .homedir directory before running the above `setup.py` script.
+
+The main change is that everything in `~/.homedir/files` has been moved to `~/.homedir/packages` and the packages will no longer be automatically updated.
