Hi Everyone,

In order to help those who are new to MenuetOS.

Please read the official documentation.

1. The .exe file from MenuetOS.org should be run from a DOS prompt to .....create a floppy to boot from. Don't just copy it to floppy, it won't work.

2. If you do not have a mouse function, Use the held ALT key with ARROWS
...to navigate. ALT and spacebar = Left mouse click (fast tap twice=dbl-click)

3. To use HD functions you must FIRST have a FAT32 partition on your HD.

4. The .ru version or the "EZ" distro demonstrate the HD functioning well and provide a way to demonstrate some of the new stuff like Systree & Xtree. Russian archives @ http://meosfiles.narod.ru/index_eng.htm

5. A MeOS server can be easily set up. AutoServer Package and our other distros are @

You can get a floppy boot maker or burn the iso to boot from CD.

** Start TinyPad from desktop on boot-up for more detailed info.

** You must have a supported NIC--Many Realtek 81 series NICs

3com: 3c59x, 3c900, 3c905

Sis900 ARE SUPPORTED !

6. USB devices if mapped through BIOS (if your machine supports this) do work on occasion. Check the next post.

I'll edit this as needed. Maybe it will help with repeated questions..






BTW - Still haven't seen the "read from HD JpegView" working.

Have had numerous posts saying it does but no proof. Show it off !


Later, Mark

Quote from Ville on USB /Ramdrive booting ! "The easiest way to boot Menuet from ramdisk (?) is to have a IDE compatible flash card. If you want to boot Menuet from USB drive, then your bios should make the USB drive visible as ide harddisk or floppy drive, which Menuet kernel can read."
