Brian,
After I'm done creating a page, do me a favor and bundle an install.txt file with each release. The install.txt should, at the minimum, have a link to the install/FAQ page that I'm going to create. The URL will be: http://green.sourceforge.net/install.html. After you've put everything in place to include the install.txt file, please close this request. I will post the link to it in the necessary tracker items and forum topics.

We need an installation (and installation FAQ page) to support Green; installation instructions need to be in everyone's face, as we're getting excessive requests for support with Green's installation.

The post here has some information on how to install Green: http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1656906&forum_id=450184

The post here has some information on how to get started using Green: http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1645613&forum_id=450184

    A prototype page is attached. Please review the document and make any necessary changes. The URLs should be relative to Green's home directory.

    Also, don't forget to add an appropriate link the menu on each page.
    File Added: install.html

    The "how to install" doesn't give me the slightest clue what to do with the zip file.
    I see nothing on any the the Eclipse menus either.

    I guess it is a little unclear

    From the page: "Simply unzip the archive. Move the contents of the plugin directory into the contents of your Eclipse directory."

    You'll notice that your Eclipse installation has a structure like this:

    -There's an "eclipse" directory
    -Inside there, there's a "plugins" directory, among others.

    1. Unzip the file.
    2. Move the "plugins" directory (the one you unzipped) into your "eclipse" directory. This should add Green's plug-ins to Eclipse. You'll have to restart Eclipse.

    If you were able to install GEF successfully, or any other plug-in, installing Green should be about the same. Make sure that you downloaded the plug-ins and not the source, and that you installed GEF properly.
