SETLS v2.2 Installation Documentation

The files from your SETLS distribution disk just need to be
copied to a user disk, then are ready for your use.

Hard Disk Installation

The SETLS files should normally be placed in a separate
subdirectory on a hard disk. To do this, after booting your
system, just place your distribution disk in drive a:, then type
the following DOS commands:

cd \ - to make certain you're at the root
md setls - creates the subdirectory
cd setls - move into the new subdirectory
copy a:*.* - copy all the files to your hard disk

In order to use SETLS, then, you may work within the setls
subdirectory. However, you may prefer to have your source files
in another location. To access SETLS, then, you should include
the \setls subdirectory on your path, with a DOS command such as:

path c:\setls;c:\ed;c:\dos

Here it is assumed that your (ASCII) editor is in c:\ed and that
you still want access to the DOS utilities in c:\dos. Adjust
these as needed to fit the subdirectory names on your hard disk.

Floppy disk installation

To run SETLS from a floppy disk, just COPY all the files
from the distribution disk onto a formatted floppy disk. If you
want to save space on the disk, the only file absolutely
necessary for execution is SETLS.EXE. However, in order to be
able to create your source files, you should also have your
text editor on the floppy as well (If you use DVED, which is
provided, you need the file DVED.COM). The other files are
documentation and examples (see the README file).

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
