What is this IMap, Mudbot thing, please?

I'm sorry in advance for failing at this kind of scripty.. coding.. programmer stuff.  D:

I just installed @Haven's Lilith system for MUSH, and it says to get these files for IMap and Mudbot.  I have the files.  I think I'm just.. missing something.  I couldn't figure it out on my own so I figured I'd suck it up and ask here.

How am I supposed to install and use Mudbot, and what is IMap?

Please help!

    Mudbot + IMap is basically a fancypants mapper that lets you do all sorts of stuff, like gallop quickly to somewhere, search an entire area for someone, search by room names, mark down divine shrines, etc etc.

    It sounds great, but I can't figure out how to actually install it..  I have the files downloaded.  Now what?  (*hides in shame*)

    You simply extract the files from the archive, then run the Mudbot program.

    Once you've done that, you need to modify your MUSHClient profile, so that instead of connecting to aetolia.com at port 23, you connect to localhost at port 123.

    Also, you'll want to get someone's actual map file, because without it you'll have to map the entire game yourself.

    Doesn't @Lanira have a converter tool to download the games XML and make it into an IMAP?
