We have a Guideline for Unix packaging, meant for prospective porters.
Assuming you have the Python package already installed, you need to install a number of Python modules. Often you can install these using apt-get commands (check your system's documentation). Otherwise you need to download and/or compile. See here for the official download locations.
The next step is to unpack the
SABnzbd-version.tar.gz file and install it somewhere appropriate. You don't have to be a system admin to install SABnzbd itself. It's just a bunch of text files (Python sources and HTML files).
SABnzbd.py from the command line (check if the X bit is set, otherwise do
chmod +x SABnzbd.py first).
SABnzbd will startup and will try to find a web browser to show you its web interface.
