    5 Before installing, you will need to choose a machine to be the Bcfg2 server.  We recommend a Linux-based machine for this purpose, but the server will work on any supported operating system.  Note that you may eventually want to run a web server on this machine for reporting and serving up package repositories.

     11The easiest way to install Bcfg2 is to use the Package Management Tool of your distribution.  This way all needed dependencies are solved automatically.  Often the Bcfg2 server package is named `bcfg2-server` and the client package just `bcfg2`.

    1013== From packages == 
    11 The easiest way to install Bcfg2 is from packages for your operating system.  You can grab packages (and source packages) for various OSes from the [wiki:PrecompiledPackages Precompiled Packages] page. Install them as you would any other packages.  The server package only needs to be installed on your designated Bcfg2 server machine; the clients package needs to be installed on any machine you plan to manage by Bcfg2. 
     14If there are no packages for your distribution available or you want to run the latest version of bcfg2.  You can grab packages (and source packages) for various OSes from the [wiki:PrecompiledPackages Precompiled Packages] page. Install them as you would any other packages.
