The extracting request handler, or Solr Cell, is placed in the contrib 
folder in Solr 1.4.1 as well. Yes, you have to do a couple of things as 
long as you do not run the example (Jetty) version of Solr.

1. Configure a lib directory in <solr.home>
2. Make sure that this lib directory will be read (edit solrconfig.xml)
3. Copy all jars from contrib/extraction/lib/ to lib
4. Copy dist/apache-solr-cell-3.1.0.jar to lib (Solr Cell is not 
included in solr.war).

That's it!

I tested this on Resin 4.0.15 today and managed to parse a lot of 
different document formats without any problems.
