## Getting the Software onto Your Pi

If you're reading this file within an unpacked distribution of the
PiDP-8/I software, you may [skip to the next section](#configuring),
because you have already achieved this section's aim.

If you are reading this [online][this] and have not yet downloaded and
unpacked the software source code onto your Pi, this section will get
you going.

### Transferring the File to the Pi

The first step is to get the tarball (`*.tar.gz` file) or Zip file onto
the Pi. There are many options:

1.  **Copy the file to the SD card** you're using to boot the Pi.
    When inserted into a Mac or Windows PC, typically only the `/boot`
    partition mounts as a drive your OS can see.  (There's a much
    larger partition on the SD card, but most PCs cannot see it.)
    There should be enough free space left in this small partition to
    copy the file over.  When you boot the Pi up with that SD card,
    you will find the tarball or Zip file in `/boot`.

2.  **Pull the file down to the Pi** over the web, directly to the Pi:

        $ wget -O pidp8i.tar.gz https://goo.gl/JowPoC

    That will get you a file called `pidp8i.tar.gz` in the current
    working directory containing the latest *release* version.  (Use the
