Well, you can't rename files like this under RISC OS - fileswitch will
complain - so presumably you've put it on some other medium; the
instructions are really intended for installs off a filecore medium -
and yes, the * is a bodge.

On the whole, I'd probably prefer comments on the install document to be
sent directly to me as it indicates in the instructions - many of these
issues most of us are already aware of, and I can filter anything
through to Wookey as need be.
