It's possible.  Check my web site on the subject:


Please read it, don't just glance at it!  There are a lot of potential
pitfalls, and if you don't read all the relevant sections, chances are
very good you'll fall into one of them.

Alternatively, for ~$7 you can buy a CD from LSL (http://www.lsl.com),
Cheap*Bytes (http://www.cheapbytes.com), or various others.
