Not all of the dependencies for ROS on Ubuntu Hardy are available via
apt, so you will need to compile and install boost and log4cxx into
`/opt/ros`.  This can be done very easily using rosdep:

$ . /opt/ros/boxturtle/setup.sh
$ rosdep install ros

I have updated the installation instructions to include a note on this.

Thanks for the feedback and sorry for this oversight.
