Installing MPTS Fixpaks using the IMAGE files

Updated for CSF 141 and DSKXTRCT

These instructions cover MPTS Fix WR08425 using the IBM recommended CSF 141
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, Base OS 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 MPTS Fix WR08425 to the 16bit TCP/IP Stack on a Warp 4 System.

What you Need

    A copy of FastKick updated for CSF141
    The diskette image files for the Fixpak
    A copy of DSKXTRCT
