I haven't tried Pyzor yet, but dcc is dead easy to install.
Type "dcc" into Google, and click on the 2nd hit.
Click on the version number at the top of the web page.
Save that on your mail server.
Unpack it and cd into it.
make install
Edit /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf, remove the "DCC" line in
there altogether and put in
dcc_path /usr/local/bin/dccproc
Then restart MailScanner.

That's it.
