4. Installing hal91 on a dos/windows harddrive.

4.1 Installing the base system

It is possible to install hal91 on a harddrive, booting up is lightning fast, and it is quite ideal if your enviroment hangs.


  1. Copy the contents of the hal91 diskette to your harddrive. (You need vmlinuz, initrd.gz, and hal91.bat on the root. hal91.ini and add.tgz must be in /hal91/ as on the disk
  2. Edit /boot.bat so that is points to the device where you've put hal91. (e.g. /dev/hda1 for the first harddrive)
  3. Type boot.bat, and hal91 should be booting.. (you can't be in windows95 while doing this.)
