This document sets forth a simplified installation procedure for LISTSERV for Unix platforms.  A new configuration script and a single binary installer replaces the need to download two separate .tar.Z archives and manually configure LISTSERV's Makefile and go.user site configuration file before installing or upgrading.

This procedure is designed for first-time installers or those who simply wish to install LISTSERV with most of its default settings.  Therefore, it is necessarily limited in its scope and does not provide user control over every aspect of the installation; but rather, it allows the installer to set several basic options and relies on Makefile defaults for the rest.  

If it is desired to have complete control over all aspects of the LISTSERV installation, it will be necessary for installers to revert to the original installation instructions found in the Installation Manual for UNIX(R).
