To update your master disc:

To create a new DP_Update disc:

If updating from a version prior to 2.16a:

Since the installer itself has been changed, to allow installation on RISC OS 4 and/or machines with SimTec IDE cards, it is necessary to update your master disc and then install the software, rather than just updating your installed copy of DataPower.

Note also that since the software is now too big to fit entirely on the original installation disc, the installation process itself now requires both the original master disc and the new update disc (you will be prompted to insert this at the right time during the installation).

So, you first need to use the update disc to update the master disc, and from then on the master disc will also use the update disc to update the installed copy of DataPower.

Since the master disc now contains stuff that doesn't change often, and the update disc contains stuff that does change, the next time you have to download a new version of !DP-Latest you can just use it to update your installed copy of DataPower, and won't have to update the master disc.

One final point: the redistribution of the software between the DataPower and DP_Update discs now means that !DPGraphs can now fit on the master disc, rather than being put onto Disc 4 as was previously the case. You can move this back onto the DataPower disc as follows:
