2. Open a command prompt and run the following commands:
cd \
cd "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\bin" (or the path to your custom specified "12"-hive folder)
stsadm -o addsolution -filename <location of the wsp file>
3. Go to Central Administration --> Operations --> Solution Management
4. Click the SPTools.SolutionExtension.wsp file
5. Click "Deploy Solution"
6. Select the Central Administration web application in the drop down list and click "OK"
