To install ZipSlack, all you need to do is unzip the file ZIPSLACK.ZIP
on the DOS partition where you want Linux installed. To do this, you'll
need an unzip utility. If you don't already have an unzipper such as
PKZIP for DOS or Windows,
http://www.pkware.com is a great
place to get one.
Boot Windows 95 and start your unzip
utility1. If you are installing to a
Zip disk, make sure it is formatted and in the drive. Open the file
called ZIPSLACK.ZIP from within your unzip utility. Choose the Extract
Files option and make sure that it is set to extract all of the files
in the archive. When the program asks you to select a destination to save
the extracted files to, give it the drive letter of the disk you are
installing to followed by a backslash. For example, if you are installing
to D drive, tell the unzip program to extract to D:\. The unzip program
should extract the files in the archive and save them to the disk. It will
create a \LINUX subdirectory on the disk.
It is very important to extract ZipSlack to the top level directory
of whatever drive you decide to install it to.
If you have only 4 MB of RAM, you will also need to unzip FOURMEG.ZIP
to the directory that you unzipped ZIPSLACK.ZIP. Follow the same process
as above to unzip this file.
You're finished! That's it. You now have a bootable Linux installation
ready to go. Take a look at the Booting page
for information about how to boot ZipSlack.
