Hi Heather,
The installation methods and instructions are in a state of flux, so please
don't be sheepish about writing when something doesn't work.
In addition to Weihai's good suggestions, I will add that you can run the
installer for the ADMB-IDE and then ignore or delete the IDE (Emacs) part,
leaving behind command line access to ADMB.
