I expect that in this case, "standard install procedures" means standard 
install procedures for Joomla.  Depending on how they handle this sort of 
thing, it may or may not require shell access.  I'm guessing not, as some 
hosted sites wouldn't provide such access, but I don't know for sure.

I'm guessing they're saying "Log in as admin and go to Components".
