Hi...

If your PHP installation doesn't have pspell, you will need to recompile PHP itself to enable it. As far as I know, this is the only way to do it...

In theory it works with aspell also, which would be easier to install, although I haven't had the opportunity to test it.

http://aspell.net/

To install on a *nix system it should be a matter of:

tar zxvf aspell-<version>.tar.gz
cd aspell-<version>
./configure && make
make install

Once it is installed you will need to install one of the dictionaries:

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/dict/
