Download an .iso and install it like any other release.  They don't link to it on the front page but if you look around, you can find it.  Here's a working link at the time of writing:


Please note that once installed you can't use your package manager because the CS9 repositories haven't been setup yet... so if there is something you want to try, it's probably a good idea to select it at install time... although you can certainly mount the .iso image post install and manually install any of the rpms on the media.
