Installing plugin to local MAMP server

Installing plugin to local MAMP server

I have a test environment setup on MAMP that is a copy of a customer's live site. They are unfortunately running an old version of Magento (1.5.1) and are not upgrading at this time. What they are doing is getting Advanced Reports from aheadWorks, which I want to install on my local MAMP test environment before I install it on their live site. 

The official directions are here:

However, those instructions don't seem to be right. They say to copy the contents of both step1 and step2 into the root directory of the Magento install, yet that would overwrite several files. Trying to just do that anyway (because, test environment) requires Magento to be reinstalled. How can I install this without having to reinstall and configure the entire site?
