 1At the moment, only installation from a harddisk
 2is supported. All commands are shown to you on
 3the screen before executing. This is just to make
 4sure that nothing bad is done to your harddisk :-)

 6You can also select to install from a premounted dir.
 7Then the "tar/base" directory must be mounted on
 8"/install", so that all tar-packages from the basic
 9stuff are in "/install/*.tgz". (So you could be able
10to install via NFS...)

12Good luck...,
13anyone wants to help programming this tool?,

24What does "setup" do on my computer?
25====================================
26Setup will ask you for a partition on your harddisk,
27where you would like to have Linux installed.
28You can then choose to install this distribution from
29your local harddisk or via network (NFS).
30setup will install a very basic system.
31At the end, you can install lilo, the Linux Loader.
32Rebooting your computer with this little linux system
33and then runing the setup-program on it, will give
34the possibility to install more packages.

36Creating a Linux-partition:
37===========================
38To install this Linux distribution, you need to
39create an extra partition on your harddisk for
40Linux.
