The comments inside the turba_objects.mysql.sql statements are not quite right
but if you're not able to adapt them to the right script, you might want to do
some light reading on MySQL administration.

You'd want to do something like:
cd horde/turba/scripts/sql;
mysql --user=root --password=yourmysqlpasswordifitexists horde <

In the above, if you have a password configured for the root user in MySQL,
substitute that, and I'm assuming you're using the default database name of

You should use applications that are tagged H3 with Horde 3.  You can't use
Turba 1.0 with Horde 3.

Per the documentation, copy the sources.php.dist to sources.php and edit
accordingly.  If you're going to be using the default localsql 
addressbook, you
shouldn't have to make any changes, assuming you have everything configured

If you haven't created a MySQL database for Horde, you'll also want to take a
look in horde/scripts/sql/create.mysql.sql and do that first, before running
the turba create script.  You'll use this, likely, for preferences, and the
DataTree, which are then configured from within Horde (Administration -> Setup
-> Horde, and the Preference System and Datatree System tabs, respectively).
