Installing Fixpaks using the IMAGE files

Updated for CSF 143 and DSKXTRCT

These instructions cover Warp 4, Fixpak 14 using the IBM recommended CSF 143 Utility in conjunction with a 3rd party utility to automate the installation process. This method may also be used to apply fixes to PEER Services, MPTS and TCP/IP Services in Warp 4

NOTE: There are always occasional reports from users with every
Fixpak ever released regarding problems when installing Fixpaks.

While no guarantees are made, the method described below has been
successfully used by myself, to apply Fixpak 14 to a Warp 4 System.
