- The TABS_GSF.EXE self-extracting file for use on Bulletin Boards does not
require an installation routine.

- The installed files consume approximately 425000 bytes of disk space.
Therefore, a 5.25"-360K floppy may not be used as a destination disk for a
complete installation. Any larger capacity floppy diskette may be used,
although a hard disk drive is preferred. If you must run TABS from two 360K
floppy diskettes, refer to the additional instructions after the
installation steps below. The required files consume approximately 330000
bytes (plus the size of your data files).

- The Address Book Solution has NOT been tested on a network. Do NOT operate
TABS on a LAN, unless the PC is in a stand-alone mode.
GSF Software & Solutions will NOT be responsible for any damages caused by
operating TABS on a LAN.

To install The Address Book Solution:

1. Boot the system (if not already on).
2. Insert the installation diskette into the desired drive.
3. At the DOS prompt, type


substituting 'A' with the drive containing the installation diskette.
4. Press ENTER (or RETURN on some keyboards).
5. Enter the destination drive where TABS should be installed. This may
be any logical drive (A, B, C, D, E, F, etc.).
6. Enter the desired path/directory the files should be installed into.
If you are unsure of what to type here, press the ENTER key to accept
the default directory of \TABS.
7. Press the ENTER key.
8. Select YES next to 'Change Config.sys File'.
If installing to 360K diskettes, refer to '360K Diskette Installation'.
9. Select YES next to 'Install Entire System'.
10. After program installation, you may be prompted for the boot drive (the
drive the PC uses when starting up - usually C for a hard disk drive).
Respond by typing the letter representing the appropriate drive. Then
respond YES when prompted to reboot the system.

360K Diskette Installation

If you must use 5.25"-360K diskette drives for installation, do the
following instead of step 9 above:

A. Select NO next to 'Install Entire System'
B. Select YES next to 'Install Selected Files'
C. Select all files except TABSDOC.TXT for installation.
D. Finish the installation routine.
E. Insert another diskette.
F. Start the installation process again, and repeat A & B above.
G. Select ONLY the two files TABSDOC.TXT, and TABSDOC.BAT for
installation. These files contain the documentation for TABS,
and the batch file to print it.
