Hi Theodore

You are trying to install two different things: octave and

octave-forge. Octave-forge (

http://octave.sf.net) is a package that

contains extra toolboxes for octave (

http://octave.sf.net).

Before you try to install octave-forge, you should have a running

installation of octave itself.
