Using the computer for the first time
First time with Windows 95/98 or Windows NT
The first time you turn on your computer you must tell Windows
your name (and the name of the company for which you work, if
applicable) and agree to the legal terms and conditions of the
Windows Licence Agreement. Windows then spends a few minutes
analysing your computer and configuring itself to take full
advantage of your computer's components. Windows 95 and
Windows 98 also offer you the opportunity to install a printer.
First time with Windows 3.11
The first time you turn on your computer a message appears
explaining the legal terms and conditions that govern the use of the
software pre-installed on the computer's hard disk. Once you have
read this message, you can press the <F3> key to continue. By doing
so you are acknowledging that you have read, understood and
accepted the terms and conditions.
Backing-up the pre-installed software
We strongly recommend that you copy or 'back-up' the operating
system and any pre-installed software soon after setting up the
system. This is particularly important for systems that are supplied
without installation diskettes for the software on the hard disk. A
back up copy will safeguard the pre-installed software against loss if
the hard disk fails or if you accidentally overwrite or delete files.
In general, any copy you make of pre-installed software must be
used only as a back-up copy, in case the pre-installed version is lost.
The Microsoft Create System Disks tool (Windows 95/98) or
the Disk Maker utility (Windows NT or Windows 3.11)
allows you to create installation diskettes from disk images pre-
installed on the hard disk.
To back up other pre-installed software (and your own files)
use the Backup tool (Windows 95/98 and Windows NT) or
Backup for Windows (Windows 3.11).
