To start with, please download Greenstone 2.50, as it has many
improvements over Greenstone 2.41 (including some minor fixes to the
ISIS plugin).

Then, use the GLI to build your collection:

1. Create a new collection (File -> New)
2. Copy the .mst, .fdt and .xrf files of your CDS/ISIS database into the
collection (Gather pane)
3. Add ISISPlug to the list of plugins (Design pane)
4. Build your collection (Create pane)
5. Preview your collection (Create pane)

This should be enough to get you started.
