If you don't want to compile the POI library (which HSSF belongs to), 
pick up one of the binary archive. Nowadays, both Windows systems and 
Unix/Linux systems should be able to handle both .tar.gz and .zip 
archive formats, pick up the one you are most comfortable with (probably 
.zip). These archive files contains the API documentation (javadoc) in 
HTML, the licenses and the binary jar files. In order to use HSSF the 
file poi-2.5.1-final-20040804.jar is enough.

If you want to compile the POI library, then pick up the source archive 
and use ant to compile everything.
