INSTALLING usrbin2.tar

If you have previously installed LINBIN1.ZIP, you should have
no problems installing this package. The steps to follow are:

o Use rawrite (available in LINUX1.ZIP) to transfer usrbin2.tar
to a formatted, blank, floppy diskette.

o Boot LINUX, remove the boot diskette and insert the floppy which
you made that contains usrbin2.tar

o Once inside Linux, do the following:

cd /usr/bin
tar xvf /dev/floppy0

o Many files will be untarred from the floppy to the hard disk.

o Files that end in .Z must me uncompressed with the uncompress

o Files that end in tar must be untarred:

tar xvf myfile.tar

o Some files that are executables must have their mode changed so
that they will execute:

chmod +x myfile

o If you have problems, make sure that you have previously
uncompressed the tar command:

uncompress tar.Z
