You have to know how to install a Django application.
See the creme/ and set your parameters (or put them in a new file called creme/ instead).
When you have chosen the creme apps you want (by commenting the unwanted ones), and configured the DB parameters
run the following commands in the creme/ directory:
>> python syncdb

If you have already a database corresponding to Creme 1.0 (else skip the following command), backup your database and run:
>> python migrate 0001 --fake --all

>> python migrate
>> python generatemedia
[Do not worry about 'URL not found' messages]
