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.
