T h e Installation documentation for this program is provided on
just one page. T h e main concern of the user is to `insert the installation
d i s k e t t e in the computer, type the word "install", and press the "Enter"
key. A l m o s t everything else is taken care of by the installation software.
S o f t w a r e installation requires approximately 25 minutes. Prior computer
experience is not necessary. M o s t of this time involves copying files from
e i t h e r t h e CD-ROM or from floppy diskettes. Detailed instructions are
available for each portion of the system, but most users w i l l n o t n e e d t o
