============================================================================

  Requirements Are:-
  ------------------

         Standard (A500), A500+, A600(HD) or A1200(HD).
         Standard Kickstart (1.3x), 2.0x to 3.1x and Workbench (1.3x),
         2.0x to 3.1x.
         Copy of AmigaBASIC and ALL the required files. (These can be
         obtained from OS1.3x Extras1.3 disk from an old A500 machine.)

============================================================================

  This is a text file only to tell you how to run AmigaBASIC on OS2.0x
  to OS3.1x on an A500+, A600(HD) and A1200(HD). It may also run on big
  box machines when using standard OCS-AGA graphics. (Note that OS1.3x
  IS included in the requirements above as this is the original OS that
  AmigaBASIC was intended for... :)

  Enjoy finding simple solutions to often difficult problems.

  General Assumptions:-
  ---------------------

  That You Should Have A Basic Knowledge Of:-
  -------------------------------------------

  1) How to set up the AMIGA.
  2) How to BOOT up the AMIGA into either a CLI, (Command Line Interface),
     or a WorkBench screen.
  3) How to use the Keyboard.
  4) How to use the Mouse.
  5) How to start programs from the CLI or WorkBench.
  6) The general operation of WorkBench, windows and requesters etc...
  7) How to format a floppy disk.
  8) How to create a BOOTABLE floppy disk.
  9) Safely connecting ANY external equipment to the AMIGA.

  History:-
  ---------

  05-08-2006.
  -----------
  Version 00.00.01. I should have kept my big mouth shut.... :)
                    Stupid, important typo' error... :/

  04-08-2006.
  -----------
  Version 00.00.00. First and probably THE only upload to AMINET... :)
                    Hence the strange version number.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Testing Evaluation:-
    --------------------

    An A1200(HD) in 2MB, 6MB and 10MB modes using trapdoor memory AND/OR
    PCMCIA memory expansions. Also an A600(HD) using KS2.0x with 1MB, 2MB
    and 6MB modes using trapdoor memory AND/OR PCMCIA memory expansions.

    All test conditions WERE/ARE using standard ~topaz 8~ fonts throughout.

    I have no idea what a strange configuration setup will create so refer
    to the ~The Legal Stuff~ above.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                 WARNING.
                                 --------

  1) DISCONNECT any faulty equipment under test from the MAINS supply.
  2) If a DC supply is used do NOT reverse polarity the connections.
  3) Do NOT power up any electronic item until it is safe to do so.
  4) CHECK and RECHECK all of your construction and repair work thoroughly.
  5) Handle ALL tools used with care.
  6) Beware of ALL types of solvents, glues and etching fluids.
  7) NEVER leave a soldering iron switched on unattended.
  8) KEEP everything OUT of the reach of small children.
  9) Switch OFF the AMIGA before disconnecting or connecting any hardware.
 10) And finally read 1) to 9) again.
