Re: WP 8 Download and Installation - my expiriance

Hi Martin,

        In what directory or file system should the guilg00.gz ( I downloaded it in a
whole unit ) resite.

        Last time I got the Demo version in Win95 file system ( downloaded by Netscape
through Getright ). After finished downloading I boot to Linux and mount the vfat file
system to access the file. From there I extracted the file and run the Runme command,
it compliants that a file is missing. So the installation was failed.

        A detailed setup procedure is most appreciated. Thanks in advance.
