Hi Greg & Ross,

Thanks for this!

Yes, I confused the issue by mentioning the Tool Shed, sorry - it's
the binaries themselves I need to install. Essentially I think I need
to follow the steps at
http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/NGS%20Local%20Setup , but I was
wondering about mi-deployment scripts as a better way to do this, and
whether that's standard practice.

After looking through the scripts they really seem like the best
option to me - it looks like they are set up so you mostly only need
to change configuration variables to get this to work.

The scripts are mentioned on the wiki instructions but don't seem to
be the default option (they are not bundled in galaxy-dist), so I
wondered if people are usually doing it this way?

Thanks,
Clare
