I have been trying to follow the instructions given here, but repeatedly get an error message pop-up titled "Mount" stating Access is Denied.

Does anyone have a solution please?

I wrote a little quick-and-dirty tutorial to assist you. This is how i installed LecoS on Windows XP for QGIS 1.8.

Download the file here.

I can not help you for MacOS systems. Scipy should be available here as well, but i do not own a Mac for testing.

According to the LecoS install page, you need to install python-scipy, python-numpy, python-imaging which you're supposed to be able to install via the OSGEO4W Installer (which is python-PIL, don't looking for python-imaging).

I ran into some errors with the installer, so it didn't actually work when I tried, but I haven't had time to go back and figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks Ian. Yes I reached this stage and selected the correct pythons, but the error message appeared just before the installation completed. – Ben Wells Jul 5 '13 at 8:51
Has anyone had any success installing this plug-in? I have tried on 2 different machines now, but without success. – Ben Wells Jul 8 '13 at 20:15
