Login to the c-panel of the website that you wish to install the Viper Guestbook on. Once you are logged in, look for the link that says Fantastico. Click on that link.

The next page is very important. This is where you will choose where to put the guestbook, your password, and the language you prefer. I will walk you through each step of this page.
Install on Domain – Choose the domain that you want to install the Viper Guestbook on. You will have more than one option if you have sub-domains on this server.
Install in Directory – You more than likely don’t want to install the guestbook on the front page. So type in a name for the guestbook so that you can put it in a sub-directory.

This is just an example. You can name it whatever you like.
