our hospitals administration are the perfect example of A.I. (Artificial
Idiocy) , but this is not on topic, so let's pass over :)

from DOS, unpack the splitted archives in a directory of your hard
disk, unzip the '' package in the same directory and launch
'install.bat', which will read mulinuxNN.tgz, x11.tgz and will make the 1.7
floppies, or directly the UMSDOS tree.
In a few words, follow the istructions for the DOS installation :)
