I used the cabal-install on hackage:
In order to install it you will need these two packages first:
For each package (starting with the last two of course), run:
> runghc Setup configure
> runghc Setup build
> runghc Setup install
Once its all done, you can instead use
>cabal install x
to install package x, and don't need to care about dependencies anymore. And theres nothing else you need to do in order to integrate it with ghc either...

Subject: [Haskell-cafe] GHC 6.10.1 and cabal[-install]
I installed GHC 6.10.1 today and expected it to contain the cabal command line utility. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Where can I download it?
How do I install and configure it so that it is integrated best with GHC 6.10.1? For example, should cabal use some directory in the GHC tree to place compiled packages in?
<http://hackage.haskell.org/> still links to cabal-install for a convenient way for installing packages. I thought that cabal-install is outdated.
Isn't it? Generally, Cabal info and documentation ist too hard to find on the web, in my opinion.
