* In a terminal do tar zxvf pskmail_server.tar.gz

Hello I am trying to setup pskmail server in Ubuntu, but I dont know where to 
put the installable and how to execute the installation.
I dont know anything of Linux.  Manuals step by step I need.
When I try to start installation with a terminal session. I says It cant find 
the files.
The files are now in the download dir.
Please some help.

Another questions. I have a live CD that installes the server but when a try to 
run a live cd client it installes the server not the client.
What to do?

On a CD here on my desk...
 It all started when we figured it would be nice to have the modem part
 included in the pskmail client. Franz-Josef did a very nice job of
 porting the necessary classes to java, he also built a simple user
 interface for testing. I have attached an image of that, nothing much to
 see there but it just shows that it does run on java and it works.

 At a later stage we decided not to include it anyway as we would then
 not benefit from all the hard work done by the fldigi group. But, it
 would make a very nice addition to an android phone. With this mornings
 announcement from Nokia I will immediately ditch my phone and get an
 android device so I would like to see this there as well.
