1. Installing the DemoCD
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
Looking through the license for the new demo CD, I didn't notice anything that said one can't generate a bootable partition by hand using the files on the Demo CD... So, my question is simply, would it be possible to use the demo CD's files to create a minimal OS/2 install upon which other stuff could be added?

Maybe, but that is rather against the spirit of the thing. eCS is not expensive, and without a revenue stream there wouldn't be any Demo CD, or any future for the OS. Think carefully before ripping off a small company. You might be cutting off your nose to spite your face (as we say in the UK)

Well, the license says that it is for educational use... My plan in doing this would basically be to LEARN just what is needed for a minimal useful OS/2 system. I COULD use my ancient copy of Warp 3 (somewhere along the line, my copy of Warp 4 got lost), but all the instructions for hand-building boot disks I've found seem to be written for a 4-series kernel and driverset, so I think it would be more useful (and less frustrating) to use the more up to date kernel.

Have you tried eBay or another auction site to bid on a copy of OS/2 Warp ver 4?

I can't do ebay shopping I guess that since I have a licence (or at least an old box) that it wouldn't be TOO wrong for me to find and d/l a copy off of p2p... Of course the firewall set up at the place where I get my highspeed access makes p2p rather hard as well
