Adding a module to drupal

Adding a module to drupal generally consists of 3 steps:

1. getting the module (and any dependencies), for example:
apt-get update
apt-install wget
wget http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/og-6.x-1.1.tar.gz

2. extracting the module(s)
mkdir -p /etc/drupal/6/sites/all/modules
tar -zxf og-6.x-1.1.tar.gz -C /etc/drupal/6/sites/all/modules
3. enabling the module
Drupal Administration area -> Administer -> Site building -> Modules

Checkout the drupal handbooks - they are a great source of information http://drupal.org/handbook
