                          INSTALLATION OF PC-FOTO(C)


        PC-FOTO and it support programs are distributed on one disk. 
        It may be installed and used on either two disk drives or on 
        a hard drive. PC-FOTO was not designed for use on machines with
        single disk drive. Operations with a single disk drive are not
        recommended unless both program and data files are situated on 
        the same disk. This might be feasible with a hard drive or 
        on higher capacity disk drives.
        Programs are also included to support its operation on machines 
        containing both the IBM Monographic adapter and the Color 
        Graphics Adapter. These systems usually have both monographic 
        and color monitors. 

        Protect your master disks..!! PC-FOTO is not copy protected,
        however, it is designed so that individual routines will not
        function with out the presence of the other files. 

        Make back up copies using the DOS "diskcopy.com" command. These 
        should be verified as exact copies using the DOS "diskcomp.com"
        program. Put you original disks in a safe spot for future use. 
        Be sure to place write protect tabs on your masters before copying 
        them. Use your back up  copies for the creation of your working
        Program disks.

        Format one disk with the /V/S options. To do that with your DOS 
        disk in drive A: enter the following command.( A>FORMAT B:/V/S ) 
        You will be prompted to place disks to be formatted in Drive B: 
        and strike any key. When you are prompted for the Volume name 
        enter the following :PCFOTO22.The format program will when 
        finished indicate if there are any bad sectors. There must be no 
        bad sectors on the disk. 

        To make your working programs follow the following instructions.

        Make your System working disk by placing Master Back Up Disks in 
        drive A:(BE SURE IT IS WRITE PROTECTED) and place your newly 
        formated disk in drive B:. Enter the following command at the A 
        prompt. ( A>COPY *.* B: ). When finished label your PC-FOTO 
        Program System disk. 

        This is your working program disk. Before running PC-FOTO format 
        a new disk with out the /S option for the data drive. Copy the 
        files "TEST0001.100. TEST0001.350 AND TEST0001.220" from the 
        master working disk. These files are sample label files which 
        will be helpful as you become aquatinted with the operation of 

        If PC-FOTO is to be operated from a hard drive all files  
        from the working disk should be copied to the same 
        directory. To do this it will necessary for a directory to be 
        created on the hard disk and the PC-FOTO files copied to it. 

        Set your default drive to the hard disk. This is usually drive
        C:. At the C> prompt enter the following statement - MD FOTO.
        This will create the directory PCMAIL. Enter CD\FOTO enter the 
        new directory. Place the PC-FOTO System Disk in Drive A:. Enter
        COPY A:.*.*. This will copy the system disk files to hard disk. 
        The PC-FOTO disk contains the two batch files FOTO.BAT and 
        FOTOD.BAT. These files contain instructions to the computer
        on the sequence of file loading. It is important that the 
        PC-FOTO files be loaded in proper order. 

        FOTO.BAT is to be used on installations which have only a 
        graphics adapter and monitor. If you have a rare dual system
        containing both monographic and  color graphics adapter 
        (Dual Monitors) you will need to use FOTOD.BAT.

        To start PC-FOTO set your drive to the one containing your
        system disk. In the case of a hard disk set it to the PC-FOTO
        directory. If you have a single adapter system enter at the 
        prompt (a>) FOTO. The Speedscreen Module will be loaded and the
        PC-FOTO program will start. 

        If you have a dual adapter system enter FOTO if the system is 
        operating from the Color Graphics Adapter. It the system is 
        operating from the monographic adapter enter FOTOD. The later
        file will switch the system to the Color Graphics adapter and 
        load the Speedscreen Module and start PC-FOTO. In a dual 
        adapter systems PC-Mail must be operated from the Color Graphics

        When PC-FOTO starts the Introductory screen will be displayed. 
        To proceed strike the space bar or enter "h" for help.. The 
        PC-FOTO main menu screen will be displayed. To proceed it will 
        be necessary to place the data disk you created earlier in the 
        drive to receive data (usually B:). Enter this drive letter "B".  
        PC-FOTO will then validate your drive choice and proceed to the  
        menu selections. If the drive choice is not valid, or if the 
        drive is not ready instructions will be given. 

        PC-FOTO is designed as an interactive - self prompting program.
        Many screen and prompts will lead you through the routine. 

        It is highly recommended that when PC-FOTO is run for the first
        time that the HELP program be read. This will assist you is
