AMOS Professional Installation Procedure
To prepare AMOS Professional ready for your exploitation and enjoyment, the System Disc must be installed for all users, and other features made accessible for hard disc users. This is very simple and all instructions are displayed on screen, step by step. Here is an outline of the installation procedure from a floppy disc:

Step One
Take the disc labelled AMOSPro_System:, and make sure that it is write-enabled. In other words, ensure that the tab at the top right-hand corner of the disc is in the closed position, so that it covers the small square hole. This will allow you to personalise your copy of AMOS Professional, with your own name appearing on screen to greet you.

If your Amiga is switched on, make sure that the drive light is not illuminated, and take out any disc that may be in the drive. Switch off your computer and wait about twenty seconds to let it clear its memory and forget any bad habits that may be lurking there.

Place the write-enabled AMOS Professional System Disc into the internal floppy drive, and switch on.

Step Two
Sit back and enjoy the AMOS Professional animated musical introduction! After a short pause, this screen fades and the next screen appears.
