README.1ST: for THE PRESIDENTS(c) v1.8 - SHAREWARE -
This program is for people interested in the history of the United
States of America. It provides short biographies of all the Presidents
and presents tests and quizzes in various ways so that the user may
review in a non-threatening atmosphere.
These programs cannot fit on one disk. They are compressed with LHARC
by Yoshi. PRES-C.EXE contains QUIZPRES.EXE, PRES.DOC and all the tests.
It also contains the biographies of the last six Presidents (PR35-39.COM &
PR40.COM) which do not fit on the second disk.
PRES-B.EXE contains all but the last six Presidential biographies,
READPRES.BAT file, REPLY.COM and LISTPRES as a menu for listing, selecting
and reading the biographies.
Have two formated disks ready. Place the first in Drive B:. Type B:.
The cursor should now look like "B:>". Type A:PRES-C.EXE and the files will
be extracted and placed on the blank disk in drive B:. Mark that disk Pres-A.
Replace that disk with the second formated disk. Repeat the process with
PRES-B.EXE. Mark that disk Pres-B.
It would be wise to now make a back-up of those two disks. If you wish
to have a bootable disk, format the Pres-A disk with the /S option and copy
all of the Pres-A files to the bootable disk but not the PRES.DOC file. This
should give you sufficient room for the necessary files. You do not need the
DOC file to run the program.
If you have disks of greater density you may place all the files on
one disk or one directory. Be sure to move to the destination before
unpacking these programs.
Read the directions (in the DOC) file on the operation of the program.
The ANSI.SYS (or NANSI.SYS) should be loaded for the .BAT file to work
properly. Place DEVICE=ANSI.SYS in your CONFIG.SYS file.
REMEMBER - THIS IS SHAREWARE AND TO CONTINUE IN THESE EFFORTS
TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL FOR YOUR EDIFICATION AND
ENJOYMENT DONATIONS ($10+) ARE APPRECIATED.
