    3. Open a command window, and change (cd) to the directory to which you downloaded the DSP installer file.
    4. Start the installer in a new shell by entering the following:
    5. sh filename.bin

      where filename.bin is the name of the DSP installation program specific to your platform. For example, enter the following to start the Solaris version of the DSP installation program:
