Is there any way someone can zip up what htey have and share it?
You need the installer from https://gplps.wordpr...-gpl-installer/
Along with the GPL CD, it is super easy to get GPL running now. Also get the latest GEM at http://gem.autosimsport.net/
And get any other GPL stuff at http://www.gpllinks.org/
Only if you don't have a GPL CD, you can follow Michov's advice.
