This will install the software under /usr/local. You then need to copy
ganeti.init to /etc/init.d and integrate it into your boot sequence
(``chkconfig``, ``update-rc.d``, etc.).

Cluster initialisation
======================

Before initialising the cluster, on each node you need to create the following
directories:

  - /etc/ganeti
  - /var/log/ganeti
  - /var/lib/ganeti
  - /srv/ganeti and /srv/ganeti/os

After this, use ``gnt-cluster init``.
