To download LOVD, go to the LOVD website and click on the 'Download' tab. You can download LOVD in two formats; GZIPped TARball and ZIP archive. The first format is common for Unix and Linux systems while the ZIP archive is popular on the Windows platform. Usually you will be able to open both formats.
Download the file of your choice and save it to your hard drive. Now extract the file using GZIP/TAR or ZIP to the desired location. On a server, common directories may be /var/www on Unix or Linux servers, or C:\htdocs on a Windows server.
