Packing List for DisketteArchive v1.10, for OS/2 v1.2+, 6 Jan 91
----------------------------------------------------------------

DISKARC.EXE - the program
DISKARC.HLP - OS/2 IPF help file
README.DOC - this file
REGISTER.TXT - registration form


Suggestions for installing DisketteArchive:
-------------------------------------------

- Create a directory named \DISKARC
- Copy DISKARC.EXE and DISKARC.HLP to \DISKARC
- Add a new program to the Utilities Group.
- Set the program value as follows:
Program Title : DisketteArchive
Path and Filename : \DISKARC\DISKARC.EXE
Parameters : %*
Working Directory : \DISKARC

This setup will allow you to access the DiskArc.hlp file without changing
your HELP pathlist. It will also allow you to start DiskArc when you select
a DiskArc data file when using the File Manager. (Note: this may not work if
you are using a version that was compressed, since no compression program,
that I know of, copies OS/2's Extended Attributes.)

If the Working Directory in the program selector is not the same directory
that contains DISKARC.HLP, you should copy DISKARC.HLP to your OS/2 help
directory, probably \OS2\HELP.


Registering DisketteArchive:
-----------------------------

DISCLAIMER - AGREEMENT

Users of DisketteArchive must accept this disclaimer of warranty:
"DisketteArchive is supplied as is. The author disclaims all warranties,
expressed or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of
merchantability and of fitness for any purpose. The author assumes no
liability for damages, direct or consequential, which may result from the
use of DisketteArchive."

DisketteArchive is a "shareware program" and is provided at no charge
to the user for evaluation. Feel free to share it with your friends, but
please do not give it away altered or as part of another system. If you share
DisketteArchive all of the files that make up DisketteArchive must be delivered.
The essence of "user-supported" software is to provide personal computer users
with quality software without high prices, and yet to provide incentive for
programmers to continue to develop new products. If you find this program
useful and find that you are using DisketteArchive and continue to use
DisketteArchive after a reasonable trial period, you must make a registration
payment of $30 to Ngb Technologies.

The $30 registration fee will license one copy for use on any one computer at
any one time. You must treat this software just like a book. An example is
that this software may be used by any number of people and may be freely moved
from one computer location to another, so long as there is no possibility of
it being used at one location while it's being used at another. Just as a
book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time.

--------------------------------------

Registered users of DisketteArchive should feel free to contact
Ngb Technologies by mail with any questions or problems. Any "bugs" that
prohibit the major features of DisketteArchive from being useful will
be fixed promptly and a new version made available.

Of course, developement of DisketteArchive is ongoing. Versions that support
new operating environments will be created, and new features will be added.
Any comments that you have will be useful in planning the course of development.
Registered user will be notified of new versions and will be eligible for free
updates (a small handling fee may be required) for 9 months after registration.

BBS support should appear in the near future. All registered users will be
informed when this occurs.
