Installing Datafax On Catalyst For The Apple III

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
You may move DataFax (Link Systems) to a hard disk for use with Catalyst. These
instructions assume you are moving DataFax to a ProFile (with driver name
.PROFILE). Substitute the name of your hard disk driver for .PROFILE if you
wish to install DataFax on a different hard disk.

COPY PROCEDURE:

1. Boot the Catalyst diskette (if you haven't already).
2. From the Catalyst main menu, select the System Utilities Program.
3. Enter "F" for FILE HANDLING COMMANDS.
4. Enter "M" for MAKE A NEW SUBDIRECTORY.
5. Enter "CATALYST/DATAFAX" with a default size of 25 files.
6. Press "ESCAPE".
7. Enter "C" for COPY FILES.
8. Copy all files from the PROGRAM disk to the subdirectory
"CATALYST/DATAFAX/=" except for the following:

SYSTEM.MISCINFO SYSTEM.PASCAL


To do this, type ".D1/" and press the up arrow key. A list of files are
displayed in a box. The up and down arrow keys allow you to move an inverse bar
over the name of your choice. Pressing the right arrow key marks the file so as
to include it in the copy process. Mark all files to be copied in this way.
When all files are marked, press RETURN.

9. When all files have been copied, press ESCAPE.
