PicLan-IP Installation

PicLan-IP has been developed for Universe/NT relese  PicLan-IP may run in conjunction with other Universe/NT releases, but this has not been tested.

Installing the PICLAN-IP Account

Beginning with release of PicLan-IP, the distribution set now has both an archive of the Universe 9.4 directory structure and a seperate UVBACKUP virtual save file of the same directory.  More information about using these file is included in the on-line READ.ME file that is included with the download.
