ON YOUR SYSTEM. WHAT FOLLOWS IS A SAMPLE FROM THAT SECTION.
==============================================================================

StS has an integrated external setup program to allow the user to
configure it to his system and requirements. "Integrated external"
means that the setup program is actually a separate program that is
automatically executed by StS and appears to be an integral part of
STS.EXE. The advantage of an integrated external program over a
built-in setup routine is a significant savings in runtime memory
usage. Since the program is integrated, it works just like a part of
StS and does not require any additional work by the user to call.

The external setup program is named STSETxxx.EXE where the 'xxx'
refers to the version number of StS with which the external setup
program was designed to work. For example in StS version 4.01 the
setup program is named STSET401.EXE. IN ORDER FOR STEREO SHELL TO
FIND AND EXECUTE THE SETUP PROGRAM, IT MUST EXIST SOMEWHERE IN THE
USER DEFINED DOS PATH.

>> Sec. 1.3 RUNNING StS THE FIRST TIME
_____________________________________________________________________

It is strongly suggested that the user create a sub-directory
named STEREO and copy all of the files associated with StS into
that sub-directory. If there is space on the C: drive for this
sub-directory that is the recommended place for it. StS uses an
integrated external setup program (see above) that must reside in
the DOS path so it is also suggested that the user edit the path
statement in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file to include the STEREO sub-
directory. If you have no path statement, then add the following
line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. PATH=C:\STEREO\

To execute StS, just type in STS at the DOS prompt like you
would any other program. StS is not resident or special with respect
to general operation with one exception. StS expects to find the
COMSPEC environment string defined. In 99% of all cases MS-DOS has
already done this job for you so no action is required by the user.
In the event that StS does not find this string, it will report the
error. If this happens, then simply add this statement to your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file. SET COMSPEC = C:\COMMAND.COM If you are not
running a hard disk, you should adjust the drive letter as required.

When executed, the StS screen will appear on your display, in
living black and white. The system defaults are set to direct
screen writes which allow the program to operate on any type of
IBM display compatible system. If your machine is not IBM display
compatible, you will need to specify the /B switch on the DOS command
line to force StS to use BIOS screen writes. ie. STS /B
