Installing a Node service on a Joyent SmartMachine

Note: This article was written waaaayyy back in September of 2010, and refers to running npm and node on a "stock" SmartOS SmartMachine.

If you're using a machine on, or one of the nodejs pre-built SmartMachines, then you shouldn't have to do this stuff, because node and npm will already be installed for you.
