[ Thanks to Linux Orbit for this link. ]

"Linux Orbit recently featured the Helixcode web site in its Spotlight section after their announcement of the release of Helix GNOME 1.2, Preview 2. Like many, I read the news, thought to myself "That looks cool" and filed it away in the back of my mind. When updating the Spotlight recently, I visited the Helixcode site and found the "Go GNOME" upgrade button. What followed was the most pleasant upgrade experience I've ever had."

"After hitting "Enter" in your terminal window, you must select a server from which to download the Helix GNOME Installer. After selecting the server, it downloads and runs which brings up the Installer dialog box... From here, you'll select several options for your Helix GNOME installation. Click "Next" to proceed to the dialog box... Here you'll see options for running the install remotely or locally. If you have a high speed connection, you can choose to install from a Helixcode Mirror or another site online. If you download the packages or have Helix GNOME on CD, you can select Local Media for the install. (You can download packages for Helix GNOME 1.2 at ftp://ftp.helicode.com/helix)"

"(Editor's note: depending on your distribution and connection, we recommend a remote install only for those with faster than a 128K connection. If you are on a 56k modem, download the needed packages and the installer and then run them from your local media. The total download for a Red Hat 6.x install is over 130 megabytes.)"
