wget http://launchpad.net/ocsinventory-server/stable-2.0/2.0.2/+download/OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.2.tar.gz
tar -zxf OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.2.tar.gz
cd OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.2

Just for the future I will also show you how easy you do the upgrade to a newer version.

wget http://launchpad.net/ocsinventory-server/stable-2.0/2.0.3/+download/OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.3.tar.gz
tar -zxf OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.3.tar.gz
cd OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-2.0.3
./setup.sh

Do the setup again, login to the webinterface again and provide again the mysql root information. The Database will be kept, but be sure to make a backup before!

That’s all, I will post another Howto for installing the Agent on CentOS 5.x and 6.x
