If you are running Linux then HiPE should work out-of-the-box for x86 and
amd64 on most kernels. It also runs on sparc/solaris(V8+) and powerPC
(both Linux and MacOSX).
HiPE can even be run on rather old machines. The x86 version should run on
a 486, I think. (At least any 586)
HiPE does not (yet) run under Windows though.
