Sample Installation Dialog

This section contains two examples of MultiNet installation procedures:

         The sample New Installation shows a new installation from CD-ROM. (Some messages may vary with the operating system version.)

         The sample Upgrade Installation shows how to upgrade from an older version of MultiNet to the current release. (Some messages may vary with the operating system version.) You must reboot your system after upgrading the software.
