This document describes how to install IRAF on an IRIX workstation or server, or update an existing installation. Both standalone and networked, multiple architecture configurations are described. Only those issues which one must understand to install IRIX/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.
