NOTES:

This install has been a very long time coming indeed! :-)

It was actually completed some time ago but I never got around to
releasing it, so it's been sitting dormant on my Amiga for ages
- but no longer! Consider it a Christmas 2005 present from me!

Greetings to Codetapper, Cfou!, Wepl and the rest of the WHDLoad team!

USING VIRTUAL DISK IMAGES:
This patch features tested support for installation from virtual disk images.
- To take advantage of this feature you must have the latest versions of:
  - RawDIC (at least v4.3)
  - TrackWarp (needed for reading from images)
- The latest versions of each may be found at http://www.whdload.de/whdload/

Disk images are a much faster means of installing and patching a game to be
run from your hard disk, and save your original floppies from possible damage!

During installation, when the RawDIC window appears, click the "Select File"
button. If TrackWarp is present, you will be asked to select a valid disk image
that you wish to use for the install. If you wish, you may click cancel and use
a real disk as normal.

Refer to the table below for details of tested, compatible image formats.

            .--- DISK IMAGE COMPATIBILITY ------------------.-----.
            | Amiga Disk File (.ADF)                        | NO  |
            | Interchangable Preservation Format (.IPF)     | YES |
            | WWarp (.WWP) / MFMWarp (.MFM)                 | YES |
            '-----------------------------------------------'-----'

PLEASE NOTE:
If a format is listed as compatible, this is not a guarantee that it will work.
You must use a disk image of a Supported Release.

The most compatible format is IPF, as long you are using is an official release
from the Software Preservation Society. Refer to the SUPPORTED RELEASES list for
details of SPS release numbers. (*) If no number is listed with a release, there
has not been an official SPS image released at this time. If an IPF is released
in the future, it may still be compatible, but again this is not guaranteed.

SPS release numbers are provided for reference only - for further details please
