On the next available line on the screen, enter
Save the file.
Exit back to the DOS prompt.
Reboot your computer.
Insert SW disk #7 (the first of two Win32s disks) in your computer.
Run the setup program.
When the screen message prompts you, insert SW disk #8.
When the screen message prompts you, insert SW disk #7 again.
