For emacs 23.x and earlier users there is a different procedure for 
getting package.el to install involving evaluation of code on your local 
system you either have to download from the elpa home page and put in your 
scratch buffer then run.  For emacs 24.x users no such steps are 
necessary, just type:
m-x package list-packages <enter> in scratch buffer and watch what 
happens.
