This document describes how to install or update IRAF on an IBM RS/6000 workstation or server running the AIX operating system. Both standalone and networked, multiple architecture configurations are described. Only those issues which one must understand to install AIX/IRAF are discussed here; a companion document, UNIX/IRAF Site Manager's Guide, deals with other issues such as interfacing new devices, configuring the IRAF networking system, adding layered software, and so on.
