I've been trying to set up Octopus on my Plan 9 system but I've been
having some trouble. Nemo has been very helpful but I seem to be too
dense to figure out what I've been doing wrong; I'd like to hear some
experiences from people in the same position as me--installing Octopus
on a Plan 9 server or terminal from scratch.

Can anyone who has tried installing Octopus with the newest
distribution describe what you ended up doing? Did you install on a
CPU server or a terminal? What files did you need to modify?
