13
14 Installation isn't yet automated, sorry. The system can only be installed on
15 the first partition which must be formatted for DOS. Set up a directory
16 structure like the following
17
18 make directories C:\reactos,C:\reactos\system,C:\reactos\system\drivers
19
20 Copy apps/shell/shell.exe to C:\reactos\system32
21 Copy subsys/smss/smss.exe to C:\reactos\system32
22 Copy services/dd/keyboard/keyboard.sys to C:\reactos\system32\drivers
23 Copy services/dd/blue/blue.sys to C:\reactos\system32\drivers
24 Copy lib/ntdll/ntdll.dll to C:\reactos\system32
25 Copy lib/kernel32/kernel32.dll to C:\reactos\system32
26 Copy lib/crtdll/crtdll.dll to C:\reactos\system32

28 The system can only be started from DOS. Copy the following files,
29 services/dd/ide/ide.sys, services/fs/vfat/vfatfsd.sys and
30 loaders/dos/loadros.com, to a suitable directory. The system can then be
31 booted with the command 'loadros.com ide.sys vfatfsd.sys'.
