Page 1




Quick-Start Instructions


If you are in a hurry to get BOOT'R up and running, follow these Quick-
Start instructions:


1. Run the Install program by logging to the source drive and directory,
and type "INSTALL".


2. If you installed BOOT'R to a directory other than C:\BOOTR, edit your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file and add the following statement:

SET BOOTR=DRIVE:\PATH (Replace with your drive and path.)


3. Reboot your machine to ensure that the new changes to your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file have taken effect.


4. Execute the BOOT'R Editor from the \BOOTR sub-directory (or wherever
you installed BOOT'R) by typing "BOOTRED", and create a new
configuration file.


5. Once you have a configuration file, exit the BOOT'R Editor, make sure
you are still located in the BOOT'R program directory, and type

BOOTR CONFIGURATION

Examples of potential command lines could be:

BOOTR WINDOWS
BOOTR DESQVIEW
BOOTR BACKUP
BOOTR KEEN1


6. At this point, BOOT'R should display the prelog screen, write the
configuration files, execute any existing Pre-Reboot Instructions, and
reboot the computer system. (Registered users may reduce or
completely eliminate the prelog delay time. Please see the section
entitled "Registration".)

Disclaimer / License Agreement


What is shareware?

Shareware distribution gives users a chance to try software before buying
it. If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are
expected to register. Individual programs differ on details - some
request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial
period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to
continue using the software to an updated program with printed manual.

Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and commercial software, and the
copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as
stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like
commercial authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both
cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is in
the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to
copy and distribute the software, either to all or to a specific group.
For example, some authors require written permission before a commercial
disk vendor may copy their Shareware.

Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should
find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's
commercial or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs
easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is
low, prices are low also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee
- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it.


Disclaimer - Agreement

By using BOOT'R, users indicate their acceptance of the following terms:

"BOOT'R 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. Neither STSI, The STSI
BBS, or any STSI employees will be held responsible for any damages,
direct or consequential, which may result from the use of BOOT'R."

"Information in this documentation is subject to change without notice and
does not represent a commitment on the part of STSI. STSI may make
improvements and/or changes in this documentation or in the products
and/or programs described in this documentation at any time."

BOOT'R 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. 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 BOOT'R and continue to use BOOT'R after
a reasonable trial period, you must make a registration payment of $34.95
(+S&H) to Stevenson Technical Services, Inc. (STSI). This 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


Page 4



book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time, BOOT'R
should not be used on two different computers at the same time.

Commercial users of BOOT'R must register and pay for their copies of
BOOT'R within 30 days of first use or their license is withdrawn. Site-
License arrangements may be made by contacting STSI at (218) 924-2050.

Anyone distributing BOOT'R for any kind of remuneration must first contact
STSI for authorization. This authorization will be automatically granted
to distributors recognized by the (ASP) as adhering to its guidelines for
shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin offering BOOT'R
immediately. (However STSI must still be advised so that the distributor
can be kept up-to-date with the latest version of BOOT'R.)

You are encouraged to pass a copy of BOOT'R along to your friends for
evaluation. Please encourage them to register their copy if they find
that they can use it. All registered users will receive a copy of the
latest version of the BOOT'R, along with a printed manual and bonus disks.




ASP Notice:


STSI is a member of the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP
wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you. If you are
unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with an ASP member by
contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP
Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member,
but does not provide technical support for members' products. Please
write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskegon, MI 49442-9427
USA, FAX 616-788-2765 or send a CompuServe message via CompuServe Mail to
ASP Ombudsman 70007,3536.




Registration:


BOOT'R is distributed under the shareware concept. You may try BOOT'R for
a period of two weeks. After this period, you must either discontinue
using BOOT'R, or register it. A single-user license is only $34.95
(+$5.00 S&H USA/Canada / $10.00 S&H on Foreign Orders). This price
includes a printed manual, along with 3 1/2" and 5 1/4" diskettes
containing the most current version. Registered users will receive a
Registration Name and Number allowing them to register all future versions
of BOOT'R. This allows the optional removal of all program delays.
To register, call STSI at (218) 924-2050 and charge it to your Visa,
MasterCard, American Express, or Discover credit card. Upon request, you
will receive a temporary registration name and number over the telephone.
For further registration information and pricing, please read the
REGISTER.DOC file included with BOOT'R.

What is BOOT'R?


BOOT'R is a program designed to maintain multiple configurations on a
single computer system. BOOT'R allows users to modify a computer's
configuration files, and reboot the machine. This allows the creation of
optimal configurations for every operating environment. For example, DOS
users may want to load certain device drivers that would give trouble
under DESQview or Windows. Certain games might require an exhorbitant
amount of free memory, which is impossible to achieve with many device
drivers loaded. Similarly, some TSRs may interfere with the operation of
specific programs, such as tape backup programs. BOOT'R allows the
creation of an operating environment without these TSRs. With BOOT'R,
different configurations can be used for DOS, DESQview, Windows, and many
other programs.

What's so special about BOOT'R? Unlike other configuration management
utilities, BOOT'R allows up to FIVE files to be modified for each
configuration that is used. Instead of only allowing a user to change his
AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, BOOT'R allows these files to be
changed, along with additional ones. Within my company, I find this most
useful to modify network files called SHELL.CFG and NET.CFG. This file
contains network configuration options that need to be changed from one
configuration to another. BOOT'R provides the flexibility needed to
accomplish this task.

Installing BOOT'R:



The installation procedure for BOOT'R is quite simple. The package
includes a program, "INSTALL.EXE", which automates the entire process.
You will need about 1 megabyte of available disk space on the hard drive
on which you plan to install BOOT'R.

The exact steps you need to take will depend on how you received BOOT'R.


INSTALLING FROM DISKETTES

To install from diskette(s), you need to perform the following steps.

1. Place BOOT'R distribution diskette "Disk 1" in the appropriate
diskette drive.

2. Execute the "INSTALL.EXE" program on the distribution diskette.
For example, if the distribution diskette is on drive A:, type
the MS-DOS command, "a:install".

3. Follow the instructions presented by the installation program. You
will have a chance to approve installation before any changes are
actually made to the contents of your hard drive. The program will
ask you for a destination directory, and will copy the BOOT'R
files to that directory. If you received BOOT'R on two
diskettes, you will need to insert Disk 2 in the diskette drive
when asked to do so. If you so direct it, the installation
program will install executable programs and documentation in
other directories of your choice.


INSTALLING FROM A HARD DRIVE

If you downloaded BOOT'R from a BBS (or received it in the form of
archive files from some other source), you will need to perform the
following steps.

1. Extract the contents of the archive file(s) in a temporary
directory on your hard drive. The procedure for doing this varies,
depending on the form in which you received the package. In all
likelihood, the fact that you are reading this text means that you
already have the necessary tools and knowledge to perform this step.
If not, you should be able to obtain directions for this from the
same source from which you received the package.

2. Execute the "INSTALL.EXE" program which you have extracted. For
example, if the temporary directory into which you have extracted the
files is C:\TEMPDIR, you would execute the MS-DOS command,
"c:\tempdir\install".

3. Follow the instructions presented by the installation program. You
will have a chance to approve installation before any changes are
actually made to the contents of your hard drive. The installation
program will ask you for a destination directory, and will copy the
program files to that directory. If you so direct it, the
installation program will install executable programs and


Page 7



documentation in other directories of your choice.

When you're satisfied that the installation was successful, you should
delete the temporary directory FROM which you installed the program,
(C:\TEMPDIR, in the above discussion), including all its contents.


Once you have installed BOOT'R, log to the BOOT'R sub-directory and type
"BOOTRED" to execute the BOOT'R Editor.





New Configuration


Description:
From the main menu, selecting "New Configuration" will cause a screen
to display, allowing you to specify the new configuration filename and
description.


Filename:
The Configuration Filename field contains the name of the
configuration file that will be referenced from the BOOT'R command
line. This file will contain information about all individual files
that should be changed when a configuration is initialized. (A .BTR
extension on this file is necessary for BOOT'R to locate the
configuration file when it attempts to reboot. If you do not add one,
the BOOT'R Editor will add one for you.)

Configuration Description:
The Configuration Description field can optionally contain the
description of the configuration file being created. This is useful
for user reference, allowing the addition of an extended description.
The Configuration Description is maintained inside the configuration
file for later reference.

Ok
Selecting Ok will introduce users to the Configuration Files screen,
where the individual files can be created and edited.

Cancel
Selecting Cancel returns users to the main menu without creating a new
configuration file.





Editing Configuration Files


Description:
The Configuration Files screen allows users to create and maintain up
to five files for each configuration. From here, users can change
filenames, print the configuration files, and access the editor. The
configuration filename and description are displayed on the top of the
screen allowing them to be changed when needed.


Page 8




Filename Fields 1 Through 5
Each of the filename fields down the left side of this screen should
contain a separate path and filename that should be modified when
BOOT'R initializes this configuration. Note that each of these
filenames MUST be preceded by the drive and directory where they are
to be created. This is a flexible feature of BOOT'R, allowing newly
created files to be placed on any drive and in any directory. A
typical configuration would contain C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT in the first
filename field, and C:\CONFIG.SYS in the second filename field.


Note: When one of the filename fields contains a filename such as
C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT, the BOOT'R Editor will load the internally
maintained version of this file. It will NOT load the file
that currently exists in the root directory of the C: drive,
called AUTOEXEC.BAT. The text field merely contains the name
of the file that will be written when BOOT'R initializes this
configuration!


Edit Buttons 1 Through 5 or Edit All
Each file listed on this screen can be edited using the BOOT'R
Editor's text editor. This editor can be accessed by pressing one of
the five "Edit ?" buttons shown along the right side of the
Configuration File List screen or by pressing the "Edit All" button.
Pressing the "Edit 1" button will invoke the editor and load the text
that corresponds to the file named in the "Filename #1" field.
Pressing the "Edit 2" button will invoke the editor and load the text
that corresponds to the file named in the "Filename #2" field, and so
on. When "Edit All" is selected, the BOOT'R Editor opens all of the
files listed in filename fields 1 through 5.


Done
This option will save the configuration files into the file specified
in the Filename field of the Configuration Files screen. Only text
fields that were not left blank on the Configuration Files screen are
saved as a valid file inside the configuration. (If a file is entered
in a text field, but there is no corresponding text shown in the
editor, the file is still considered part of the configuration, and
will be written as a BLANK file!)


Print
Selecting the Print button allows a printout of any or all of the
files in the configuration to be printed. Output can be sent to
LPT1:, LPT2:, LPT3:, or to a valid file.





Editing Configuration Text


Description:
The BOOT'R Editor's text editor allows quick and easy editing of each
of the files maintained within a configuration. Supported commands
include cut, copy, paste, delete, find, search and replace, load,


Page 9



insert, save, save all, and more. Windows can be moved, resized, and
tiled. Color settings can be changed, and mouse speeds can be
increased or decreased to suit individual preference. Since most of
these commands and options are standard to a basic text editor, we
will only highlight the special options below.


Load & Insert:
When you are creating your initial configurations with the BOOT'R
Editor, you may find the Load and Insert features extremely useful.
Load allows text from an existing ASCII file to be loaded directly
into the editor, REPLACING the currently displayed text. Insert
allows text from an existing ASCII file to be INSERTED into the
editor at the position of the cursor.


Save & Save All:
After you have made changes to (or created) a configuration file,
such as C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT, you can select Save to store the text in
the current BOOT'R configuration file.

Important: When you select "Save", BOOT'R does NOT modify the
contents of the C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT file on your hard drive! It merely
stores the text you entered in the BOOT'R configuration file. When
you want to change the files on the hard drive you must follow the
instructions given in the section entitled "Using BOOT'R".






File Dialog Boxes



Description:
The file dialog box screens allow users to open or delete an existing
BOOT'R configuration.

Note: When opening a file, make sure that any files being opened
were originally saved with the BOOT'R Editor. The BOOT'R
Editor will NOT read files properly if they have not been
created with the BOOT'R Editor! For users upgrading from a
previous version of BOOT'R (prior to 1.00), we recommend you
that create a new configuration and load your existing text
files into the built-in text editor. This will ensure that
the files are created and saved properly, prior to any
attempts to open them with this feature.

Filename:
This text field allows users to manually enter the name of a file. If
you enter a filename without an extension when opening or deleting a
file, the BOOT'R Editor appends a .BTR extension and searches for a
file in the current directory. If the file exists, it is
automatically selected when you press ENTER. If the file does not
exist, the BOOT'R Editor will either advance the cursor to the Files
list box for manual selection, or issue an error message, depending on
the existing conditions.



Page 10



Files:
The Files list box provides users with a way to search the current
drive and directory for files with the selected (*.BTR or *.*) file
filter. Pressing the SPACE BAR will highlight a file from the list,
and pressing ENTER on a highlighted file will instruct the BOOT'R
Editor to attempt to open or delete it (depending on the current
routine).

Directories:
The Directories list box displays a list of directories on the
currently selected drive, and a list of available drives. The current
directory can be changed by pressing ENTER on the desired directory,
or clicking on it with the mouse. When a new directory is selected,
the "Files" list box is updated to display all files matching the file
filter in the new directory.

Directory:
This non-editable field contains the current drive and path. Use this
field as a quick-reference to see where the BOOT'R Editor is looking
for files.

Ok:
The Ok button can be selected when a file has been highlighted from
the Files list box. The BOOT'R Editor will then attempt to open or
delete the selected file.

Cancel:
The Cancel button can be selected to cancel the current routine and
return to the main menu.





BOOT'R Delays



Description:
The Delays screen allows the modification of the delays that occur
prior to BOOT'R executing the command to reboot your computer.

Prelog Delay:
The prelog delay is the number of seconds that BOOT'R will display the
prelog screen prior to initializing a configuration and rebooting the
computer system. The default for this field is 3 seconds. Registered
users can reduce or completely remove this delay. Non-registered
users are asked to register BOOT'R. Registering will allow the
removal of this delay. For information on how to register, please
read the "Registration" section near the beginning of this
documentation file.

Note: Non-registered users who attempt to change this field can do
so, but BOOT'R will not recognize the changes unless this
software package is registered.

Pre-Reboot Delay:
The pre-reboot delay is the number of seconds that BOOT'R should pause
(after displaying the prelog screen) to allow hard drive caches to
flush. This precautionary measure can be useful for users who are


Page 11



experiencing corruption or other problems when attempting to use
BOOT'R.

Ok:
Selecting Ok instructs the BOOT'R Editor to save this configuration
information to the file BOOTR.INI. BOOT'R reads information from this
file prior to initializing a configuration and rebooting the computer
system.

Cancel:
Selecting Cancel instructs the BOOT'R Editor to ignore any changes
that have been made to the previous settings, and return to the main
menu.




Pre-Reboot Commands



Description:
This screen allows users to enter up to four lines of text (DOS
commands) that should be executed prior to rebooting the computer
system. Users may find this helpful for flushing and disabling a
cache, to prevent any corruption from occurring during the rebooting
process.

Pre-Reboot Commands 1 Through 4:
Use these text fields to enter any DOS commands that need to be
executed prior to rebooting the computer system.

Ok:
Selecting Ok instructs the BOOT'R Editor to save this configuration
information to the file BOOTR.INI. BOOT'R reads information from this
file prior to initializing a configuration and rebooting the computer
system.

Cancel:
Selecting Cancel instructs the BOOT'R Editor to ignore any changes
that have been made to the previous settings, and return to the main
menu.




Register BOOT'R


Description:
This screen provides basic information on how to register BOOT'R, and
allows registered users to enter their registration name and number,
as they received it from STSI.

Registration Name:
The Registration Name text field allows users to enter their personal
name or the name of their company or organization. If a valid
registration number is entered in the following text field, the
registration name will appear on the prelog screen of BOOT'R.



Page 12



Registration Number:
The Registration Number text field allows users to enter the
registration number they received from STSI upon registering BOOT'R.
For information on how to register, please see the "Registration"
section near the top of this documentation file.

Ok:
Selecting Ok instructs the BOOT'R Editor to save this configuration
information to the file BOOTR.INI. BOOT'R reads information from this
file prior to initializing a configuration and rebooting the computer
system.

Cancel:
Selecting Cancel instructs the BOOT'R Editor to ignore any changes
that have been made to the previous settings, and return to the main
menu.




Using BOOT'R:


Once you have created a BOOT'R configuration using the BOOT'R Editor, you
can change to that configuration in one of two ways. The first option is
to simply type "BOOTR.EXE" on the DOS command line. A dialog box will be
displayed, showing you the names of all configurations in the BOOT'R sub-
directory. Each configuration name will be located on a push-button.
When you select the push-button, the configuration name contained on the
button will be executed.

The second option allows BOOT'R to be used from the command line. To
change to a different configuration using BOOT'R, simply specify the
desired configuration on the BOOT'R command line.


The BOOT'R command line structure looks like this:


BOOTR CONFIGURATION /TEST


BOOTR BOOTR must always be the first entry entered on the
command line.


CONFIGURATION This is the name of the desired configuration. Each
configuration is maintained in a separate .BTR file that
is created using the BOOT'R Editor. In order for BOOT'R
to work properly, there MUST be a file in the default
BOOTR sub-directory with the name of the configuration
file you specify here.


/TEST This command line parameter is optional, and allows the
configuration files to be changed WITHOUT actually
rebooting the computer. This option is useful to test
BOOT'R and see if the CONFIG.SYS, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and any
other files are being written properly. It is also useful
to verify that the cache is being properly flushed and


Page 13



disabled, without risking data corruption.

BOOT'R Examples:

BOOTR CPBACKUP BOOTR NORMAL
BOOTR DESQVIEW BOOTR NOVELL
BOOTR DESQVIEW /TEST BOOTR WINDOWS
BOOTR LANTASTIC BOOTR WINDOWS /TEST
BOOTR KEEN1


When you type a similar BOOT'R command line and press ENTER, BOOT'R will
display the prelog screen, write the configuration files, execute any
existing Pre-Reboot Instructions, wait for the cache to flush (depending
on the pre-reboot delay), and reboot the computer system. (Registered
users may reduce or completely eliminate the preset delays. Please see
the section entitled "Registration", near the beginning of this
documentation file.)





Using BOOT'R With A Multitasker:


Caution is advised when using BOOT'R in combination with Windows or
DESQview. Exit all open windows and exit the multitasker BEFORE
attempting to execute BOOT'R. Immediately prior to issuing the reboot
command, BOOT'R checks to see if it is being executing from inside a
Windows, DESQview, or OS/2 environment. If it detects one of these
environments, it issues an error message and terminates the execution of
the reboot command (after the configuration files have been modified!).





Cautions!


Do NOT use BOOT'R in combination with any disk cache that performs write-
caching, unless you flush and disable the cache by entering a DOS command
on the Pre-Reboot Instructions screen of the BOOT'R Editor.

Please note: If you are using MS-DOS 6.x, make sure that one of your Pre-
Reboot Instructions contains a command such as this:

C:\DOS\SMARTDRV.EXE /C

Users who do not perform this step have reported problems, such as BOOT'R
not writing the proper configuration files before rebooting. Once this
statement is added, however, these problems disappear.
