<h3>Step 2 - Install Blozom</h3>
<p>Blozom has been tested on Mozilla 1.3 windows xp and debian linux. It works, but Linux users in particular should view the release notes</p>

<p>Install the <a href="#" onclick="triggerURL('http://downloads.mozdev.org/blozom/blozom_0_1_4.xpi');">0.1.4 XPI</a></p>
<br/>
<h3>Step 3 - Set up your prefs</h3>
<p>Save this start <a href="http://blozom.mozdev.org/install/prefs.js">prefs file</a> to [mozilla app directory]/chrome/blozom/content.  Edit the file paths for your data and publish folders.</p>
<br/>
<h3>Step 4 - Create your templates</h3>
In your blozomDataPath folder you'll need a subfolder called templates with a header.txt, footer.txt, item_head.txt, and item_tail.txt.  Alternatively, you can download a popular movableType <a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/blozom/templates.zip">template zip file</a> with and extract it to your dataPath.

<br/><br/>
<h3>Step 5 - Run it</h3>
Run mozilla with the command line argument -chrome chrome://blozom/content/blozom.xul. On windows, you can download this <a href="http://blozom.mozdev.org/install/blozom.bat">bat file</a> to your Mozilla folder. In addition, you may visit bookmark the url chrome://blozom/content/run.html to launch blozom from a running mozilla instance.
