This document describes how to install IRAF V2.11 on a Sun workstation or server running either SunOS 4.1 or Solaris V2.4 (or later), or update an existing installation. Both standalone and networked, multiple architecture configurations are described. Only those issues which one must understand to install IRAF are discussed here; a companion document, Sun IRAF Site Manager's Guide, deals with other issues such as interfacing new devices, configuring the IRAF networking system, Sun/IRAF shared libraries, adding layered software, and so on.
A PostScript version and a PDF version of this Installation Guide is available from the IRAF FTP archives.
