[Biojava-l] Newbie Installation Question

You just have to download the jar files from
http://www.biojava.org/download14.html . There's no such thing as
'installing' it really - just download the jar files, then make sure
they're on your classpath (or set them up as a library in your IDE).

If Internet Explorer is renaming or doing stuff behind the scenes to the
jar files when you download them, try using Firefox (I haven't used IE
for so long I can't remember how to fix that particular problem).
