Option Pack Installation

Once you have downloaded the NT Option pack (or better got it on CD-ROM),
start the installation by clicking on INSTALL.
If you have installed already NT SP5 or 6(a), you will get a warning:

Select "YES "
( My system had SP6, everything has work properly )

Accept the "End User License Agreement", then continue with "Next"

I suggest to make a "Custom" installation, so that you
can select the details of the installation:
(the graphic below is pasted together from multiple screen shots to show
all Components on one screen, in reality you need to scroll to see all of them)

You should select the "Personal Web Server (PWS)" and
select to "Show Subcomponents":

you have to place the Checkmark
on tis option, it is NOT a default
installation option.

The "Online Documentation"
is extensive and very details,
as you can see on selecting to
"Show Subcomponents".
If you do not need it, you can
save some diskcapacity by
un-selecting this option.

The locatio of the files for the WWW-server and FTP-server.
I suggest to keep the defaults.

(no idea, so) "Next"

again: "Next"

After all these questions, finally the files are getting copied/installed.

I had already Internet Explorer 5
installed on my system, which
installed a newer version of
I suggest not to overwrite any
newer files, so "No to All"
Although the Webserver
is already running,you
may have to restart
your system.

You are ready to use your website with Personal Web-Server by copying
them to the www-service directory (default: C:\inetpub\wwwroot).
Make sure that you have a default document called DEFAULT.HTM.

Management of the Personal Web-Server

To manage the Personal Webserver, right click on the Webserver icon
in the taskbar:

then select "Properties" :

The "Personal Web Manager" is identical to the
Windows98 version
(please view the Windows98 page for more details).
