1. Getting started.

1.1 Getting hal91

At the moment the best place to get hal91 is through the web-site, http://home.online.no/~okolaas/hal91.html but hopefully I will get some ftp mirrors quite soon. When downloading please avoid using Netscape 4.0x, as it is known to misinterpret files downloaded from the web-server.

1.2 Transferring hal91-0.x.x to a disk

  1. Obtain the disk image
  2. Transfer the data to the disk.. by typing:
linux

dd if=hal91.img of=/dev/fd0

msdos/os2/windows

rawrite hal91.img a:

1.3 Booting the system

  1. If you are running linux, press alt+ctrl+del,.. if you are using windows 95 press your reset button.
  2. The disk loads.. (you must enable booting from floppy, and set the boot sequence A:,C:.. in your bios, this should be enabled by default)
  3. Hopefully hal91 is alive,.. if not see the Frequently Asked Questions section

1.4 Loading the datadisk

There is a datadisk lying around since a former version of hal91 this disk should also work with 0.2.0 just type init.disk2 and you should get a new ramdisk mounted under /usr/ with programs like lynx, irc, mc, cfdisk...
