I asked Steve about this several times and did not get to the data yet... :-(

But he can't run away on the Isle for long. HA! ;-)

There are install scripts to do this. A bit of tweaking here and there to
get your apache point to the right stuff and so on. I guess about a couple
of hours of work.

Then do you want to install the database anyway.. :-?

You can extract a bit of help from
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Using_the_dev_server, although it
is dev.openstreetmap.org - specific..

I hope you do not things like the one cartograph I met once. He had to
enter vector data from UTM projected maps and to not mess around with the
main database, he just inserted the stuff into an other zone!!! "It is
somewhere in the atlantic, so nobody bothers..."  ;-)

Ciao, Imi.
