However, There are a few things you must do before and after installing STACKER on an IBM PS/1. The following step-by-step procedure will prepare your PS/1 for STACKER: Procedure: Note: Step 1 is recommended, but not required. 1. Start IBM DOS from the 4th quadrant screen. Click on "Backup and Restore Your Fixed Disk" and press <Enter>. Follow the prompts that you are given to backup all of the files on your fixed disk. NOTE: The number of diskettes will vary depending on the amount of data on your hard disk. 2. Press <Shift>+<F9> to get to the DOS prompt after completing the backup. 3. Type c:\dos\CUSTOMIZ and press the <Enter> key to setup the system. (Customiz can also be run from the IBM DOS quadrant.) 4. The third line from the bottom of the screen says "Read Config.sys:". Click on "From Disk". 5. The next line down says "Read Autoexec.bat:". Click on "From Disk". 6. The last line says "Disk to read from:". Click on "C:". 7. Press <Enter> to save the changes and exit CUSTOMIZ. 8. Restart your system by pressing <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Del>. NOTE: At this point your computer will boot directly to the DOS prompt. 9. You can now install STACKER by inserting the STACKER diskette and typing: A:INSTALL /B=C At the end of the STACKER install let STACKER reboot to access the STACKER drive. This will again take you to the DOS prompt. 10. To restore the PS/1 system menu, edit the Config.sys on drive C: and insert the line: INSTALL=D:\SHELLSTB.COM (STACKER 2.0 users can use SEDIT to modify Config.sys.) 11. Restart the system for changes to take affect.
