Puma-EM comes with bash scripts that are supposed to help you in installing the third party software. We strongly advise you to read and use the script corresponding to your machine. They are contained within the installScripts, which you can download alongside Puma-EM itself. You'll need root password to run any of these scripts. Ask your administrator to run/explain it for/to you.
If you decide to go on your own, the third party software should be installed in the same order as given below. It has to be installed on each machine on which you plan to run Puma-EM.
