AFAIK Cloudera repository has mahout now. So may be that should be included in the latest CDH3u2 demo VM from cloudera as well, but I'm not sure since I haven't checked the same yet. Please check the cloudera downloads for more details.
AFAIK Mahout is just a collection of classes and hence does it require some installation? If you can take some mahout releases 0.5 you may not even need to do the build. If you are taking the latest trunk then you have to do a build. I have played around with mahout CF some time back and I don't remember myself installing anything.

Subject: Mahout and Hadoop
I have Hadoop installed on Ubuntu VM and next need Mahout installed on this Ubuntu virtual machine.
I was hoping if there is already preconfigured Hadoop and Mahout available? Hadoop install was simple but the Mahout install appears to have some specific installation directories, dependencies etc. So any pointers to get the Mahout up and ready would be appreciated, else if there is already a preconfigured virtual machine available?
