If you are running php4 or php5.1.6 you will need to get the cgi binary and follow the following steps:
Navigate to your cgi-bin directory. If you don’t know where your cgi-bin directory is, ask your hosting provider.
- wget http://www.magentocommerce.com/support/php5cgi/php5-cgi
- chmod 755 php5-cgi
Then you should be set to install.
For the beta release of version 1.1, use: http://www.magentocommerce.com/downloads/assets/1.1.0/magento-1.1.0.tar.gz
You may also want to edit the .htaccess file in the Magento folder before you start the install - eg 1and1 users will need to remove the # from the lines related to 1and1
