Download the cabal-install .tar.gz from Hackage, unpack it.
There's a script bootstrap.sh in the directory, run that, it wgets zlib and HTTP and 
installs them, after that, it installs cabal-install and you're ready to go.
If you're on windows, there's a cabal binary installer somewhere (should be 
findable from the cabal homepage, I believe).
