I have finally put together an installer that will work for DOS, all
flavours of Windows, and possibly OS/2 systems. This is a prototype
installer (ie, first ever version) that will let you put together a
simple, yet workable system, and then you can play from there.

Instructions are quite detailed, I suggest you use them. The installer
package and instructions can be found at the following URL (webpage) :


Then scroll down to the DOS section further down the page. No files to
edit, just answer the questions, and make sure you have a TNC in kiss mode,
and a packet driver for network connectivity. Comments and feedback are
more than welcome.

Technically, this installer can be used for ANY flavor of NOS, just
change the autoexec.map file to suite your particular NOS commands.

More advanced installer packages will eventually be written, but this
is just a start for those first time users that only have a standard
Windows XP setup for instance, and want to try their hand at NOS.

The source code for the installr will be made available later on.
