         eg INSTH A C

     where <source drive> is the drive containing the MEDPAS disk 1
     you received from the distributor, and <destination drive> is
     the drive the MEDPAS files will be copied TO.
     A third parameter  is available eg Insth A C M  which will

     Disk 1 onto a disk formatted in drive A: and label it Disk 1.
Further Info:

     On the hard disk all the unarchived files will be under
     the subdirectory of \IDRSYSMP. There will be one batch file
     MEDPAS.BAT  in the Root Directory. Note this is not the same
     as the MEDPAS.BAT file used to run the floppy disk version.
     The floppy disk file distribution is detailed in the file
     MEDFILES.TXT found on Disk 4 of the unarchived set or in the
     \IDRSYSMP subdirectory on your hard disk.

Running MEDPAS:
     The hard disk will have a subdirectory of IDRSYSMP and a
batch file called MEDPAS.BAT in the root directory. Simply type

                      MEDPAS  <CR>

and follow instructions. Help is available with <Alt><F1>.
     Running from floppies, place Disk 1 in Drive A: Disk 2
in Drive B: and also type

                      MEDPAS  <CR>
