Step 1.  Use your favorite search engine and search for "howto apply patch".

Step 2.  Make a backup of your Bugzilla directory!

Step 3.  Capture all the output of running the patch command into a file
- it makes it much easier to deal with things, if you've made changes to
Bugzilla before this patch...

I would actually like to see some links in the documentation/webpage on
how to apply patches - it's hard to know a good way to do it & I had to
look at 2-3-4 pages when I was applying the same patch (I think)...
Real simple instructions, like '1.  Save the patch file to the Bugzilla
directory.  2.  Run the following command:... ' would save time for
those of us who don't know how to patch :) (No, I didn't do patches when
I was a kid)
