 +===== Installing the AoE target software =====
 +
 +If you do not have dedicated AoE target hardware, you will need to install the //vblade// package. ​ Most distros seem to provide this package; if yours doesn'​t then you can download the source for the latest version from [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=130453&​package_id=143790]].
