    Here it is.

    * Open the terminal. Type:

    wget http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries...ries/rpmforge-release-0.2-2.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm

    Hit enter. Wait for the download to complete. Type:

    su

    Hit enter. Type your root password. Hit enter. Type:

    rpm -Uvh *.rpm

    Hit enter. wait for the installation to complete. Type:

    rm *.rpm

    Type "y". Hit enter. Type:

    su -

    Hit enter. Type:

    gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo

    Hit enter and gedit will open. Type the following in gedit:

    [core]
    name=FreshRPMS-Core
    baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
    http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/core
    failovermethod=priority
    enabled=1
    gpgcheck=1
    [updates]
    name=FreshRPMS-Updates
    baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates
    http://ayo.us5.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/updates

    Be sure there is a carriage return (blank line) at the bottom of the file. Click the "save" icon in gedit and then close gedit. Type the following in the root terminal:

    Is Apache already installed on your system? Then the default document root is /var/www/html, and you can install Joomla there as described in the Joomla installation notes.
