Cabal, installing it

I have a question about installing the Cabal tool. After downloading and
extracting it to a folder I seem to be unable to install it correctly.
I moved into the cabal folder which contains a Makefile, and typed 'make'.
A longish compilation/installion took place and so I hoped that all was
well. However when including it as a package when compiling with GHC
(6.2.2) it simply says:
ghc-6.2.2: unknown package name: Cabal
The command I used to compile was
ghc -package Cabal Setup.lhs -o setup
So it seems Cabal hasn't actually installed properly. I'm quite new to
Linux (I'm using SuSE 9.0) so I hope that there might be a simple answer.
I would like to install Cabal so that I can use Warrick Gray's new versions
of the HTTP modules.
Any answers will be gratefully received.
