Note: If you are using Windows, please use this guide to installing Raspbmc.

To install Raspbmc, you need a Raspberry Pi board, a 5V micro-USB power connector, a LAN cable, a HDMI cable and an internet connection. You also need a SD card with storage capacity of 4GB or more. Ensure that it is a class 10 or better SD card.

$ wget http://svn.stmlabs.com/svn/raspbmc/release/installers/python/install.py
$ chmod +x install.py
$ sudo python install.py

The installer prompts you for the location to install and other settings. Most of that is straightforward.
