Yeah, I guess that's better advice than my saying talk to a lawyer, as 
you really don't need to do that if you're just going to install it and 
not distribute it. However, as Charles mentioned, if you're going to be 
distributing this to client (as in customer) machines, then the legal 
implications are different. If this is internal and won't be 
redistributed outside your home or office, then you don't have much to 
worry about.
