How to get START programs up and running
1) Write protect your disk.
2) Make a backup copy. We format the disk using TWISTER.PRG (written by Dave Small and Dan Moore, Summer 1988 issue of START) to increase the size of a single-sided disk to 400K. You can back up onto one Twisted, single-sided disk; one double-sided disk; or two GEM-formatted, single-sided disks.
NOTE: TWISTER DOES NOT WORK WITH GEM'S DISKCOPY. To make a backup, open a window for your START disk, then drag the files from the window to the backup disk.
3) Store the original and use the backup hereafter.
4) Un-ARC the files. We use Double Click Software's DC SEA utility to create self-extracting archive files. To un-ARC a program, simply double click on the filename.
NOTE: IF YOU USE NEODESK'S ALTERNATE DESKTOP, DISABLE IT BEFORE UN-ARCING.
5) When the dialog box appears, choose Extract.
6) When the file selector appears, choose a destination disk (hard disk, RAM disk or floppy disk) for the uncompressed files. Make sure the destination disk has enough space for the uncompressed files, whose sizes are given in the chart on the previous page.
The screen goes blank, then the files are listed as they are extracted, and marked "OK" if the uncompression is successful.
