To install the 3matrix package, perform the following steps:

	1.  From this web page, download '3matrix-1.0.tar.gz'
	
	2.  In a convenient location, uncompress and unpack the software by
	    typing:
				gunzip 3matrix-1.0.tar.gz
				tar -xvf 3matrix-1.0.tar
		
		This creates a directory ./3matrix-1.0 containing the distribution
		files.
	
	3.  Change directories into the 3matrix-1.0 directory that was just 
	    created. 
	
	4.  Open and carefully read the README file there for instructions.
	
	 ** NOTE: You will probably need to download the pdb-xx-20xx.tar file 
	    as well - the README file will give you the necessary details.
