1. Run "./configure" to configure Towel's Makefiles for your system.
2. Run "make" in the toplevel directory of the source tree. This will build Towel. The Makefiles will only work with the BSD or GNU versions of "make".
3. (Optional) Install Towel to the system by running "make install" as root.
4. Run "./towel" (or simply "towel" if you have done "make install" to a directory in your path) to start Towel.
