I'm following the directions from here, http://www.ros.org/wiki/xv_11_laser_d... I installed Cturtle and then when I try to install the driver I get this.

linux$ rosinstall ~/cwru-ros-pkg /opt/ros/cturtle 'http://www.ros.org/wiki/xv_11_laser_driver/Tutorials/Running%20the%20XV-11%20Node?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=cwru-ros-pkg.rosinstall' rosinstall operating on /home/ringo/cwru-ros-pkg from specifications in rosinstall files /opt/ros/cturtle, http://www.ros.org/wiki/xv_11_laser_d... processing config_uri /opt/ros/cturtle ERROR: woah, unknown installation method git not installed, cannot create a git vcs client

So do I need to install GIT or is there another way?

I downloaded the file and tried installing it like this

hold$ rosinstall ~/cwru-ros-pkg /opt/ros/cturtle 'cwru-ros-pkg.rosinstall' rosinstall operating on /home/ringo/cwru-ros-pkg from specifications in rosinstall files /opt/ros/cturtle, cwru-ros-pkg.rosinstall processing config_uri /opt/ros/cturtle ERROR: woah, unknown installation method git not installed, cannot create a git vcs client

but it still did not work.

You will have to install git. See @fergs answer for details on that for Ubuntu. I've also updated that tutorial with a step to install git if you don't have it already installed.

Note that the driver should also work against Diamondback, so feel free to install against that if you would prefer.
