Include the extension files and set:

$wgCaptchaClass = 'FancyCaptcha';

The images aren't generated live; you can use the captcha.py script to
batch-generate a directory full of images, which can be periodically replaced to
keep the pool fresh.

Set the $wgCaptchaDirectory to this directory, and $wgCaptchaSecret to the
string you passed as the --key parameter to the generator script. The directory
doesn't need to be web-accessible, but the files do need to be readable by the
web server process.
