   --+  Introduction  +--

This distribution includes three scripts that allows for some alternative ways
of starting and stopping the Poseidon USB stack. The scripts are the following:

 - PoseidonManX -

This script is meant to be used with a standard Poseidon install,  where the
stack already has been properly configured. It opens a simple requester which
gives you the possibility to either start or stop the stack. Stopping Poseidon
may sometimes be required since it conflicts with certain types of software,
and the PoseidonManX script makes this a bit easier, since it's quicker than
doing it via Trident. Just double-click it's icon to launch the script.

 - PoseidonMan -

This one is meant for using a minimalistic version of Poseidon, that doesn't
use Trident, which in turn also means that MUI (Magic User Interface) is not
required. Upon running the script, a requester will open, which allows you to
either start or stop the Poseidon stack. This will then be done by using the 
AddUSBHardware and AddUSBClasses commands directly. You can start PoseidonMan
by simply double-clicking it's icon.

 - StartPoseidon -

It is possible to make a bootable floppy disk that contains a minimal version
of Poseidon. In order to make the stack start automatically upon booting, the
StartPoseidon script can be run from the Startup-Sequence of the boot disk.
This can be done by simply adding a "Execute >NIL: S:StartPoseidon" line some-
where in the Startup-Sequence file. Just have in mind that both the script and
Poseidon itself requires that T: has been assigned first.

Take a look at the included documentation for more information about using a
minimal version of the Poseidon USB stack.

   --+  Requirements  +--

Amiga with Kickstart 3.0 and 68020 CPU as minimum.

   --+  Installation  +--

This is really simple! Just copy the script(s) to wherever you like. A proper
location for  PoseidonMan or PoseidonManX might be the  System drawer on your
Workbench partition.

   --+  Background info  +--

The Poseidon scripts is something that originally was created for my Amiga911
Maker project,  but I decided to release them as a seperate  distribution as
well. This in case somebody will find them useful.  The included versions of
the scripts  has been slightly modified in  order to make them somewhat more

More info about the Amiga911 Maker project, and the various boot disks + packs
that can be created with it can be found at:
