Re: So You Think You Can Install A Door
Put up a curtain rod and use an old blanket?
If this is an exterior door, use a shower curtain liner or visqueen instead. Add duct tape in windy or rainy conditions.
I'm assuming that the jamb is not removable, otherwise you'd just pull it out rehang the whole works straight, level, and plumb. As others have stated, the hinge pins must be colinear (sharing the same axis). You might find it easier to install just two extra-heavy-duty hinges rather than trying to align multiple hinges on a curved jamb.
P.S. -- That's a pretty limited set of tools. No hammer, screwdriver, chisel, or utility knife?

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
