LOADING WITH EZFAST.COM or EZLOAD.COM
Step 1 is for a DSP-10 with V3.50 or V3.80

from Dwight Elvey.
If you want to keep the DSP-10 settings, copy the
UHFA.CFG from your original install, or install the new 3.96 in the
original directory. Not recommended for the faint of heart.
You MUST operate the PC in "true" DOS,
not the DOS window that is available in Windows 95 and later operating
systems. If your PC comes up running Windows you will need to Shut Down
WINDOWS AND REBOOT DIRECTLY TO DOS. You may make a BOOT disk while
running WINDOWS and use this to BOOT from a Floppy drive to the DOS
prompt or alternately use F-8 while the COMPUTER is booting to interupt
the normal BOOT sequence and select the BOOT to DOS Prompt. If this is
not done Windows may indicate great amounts of distress over the
direct interaction with hardware interrupts, and not allow
communication on the serial port.
