Beos Max Edition Download UPD
R5 was the first release of BeOS for x86 to have a freely downloadable version which could be fully installed on a user's hard drive; previous versions had a free Live CD download, which could not be installed. R5 was also to be the last version to support the PowerPC architecture which BeOS had originated on, including the company's own BeBox hardware. According to Be's marketing, it was the first OS to ship with legal MP3 encoding and decoding support.

Personal Edition, a 48MB download, was the most commonly used version of R5. Stripped of developer tools (though these were later made available as a separate download), mp3 and Indeo encoders, and RealPlayer, it was installed into a 500MB "hardfile" through Windows or Linux, and could be booted either directly from Windows 9x or DOS, or using a boot floppy. Once booted, it could be installed to a real hard drive or partition, and the Be Bootloader could be installed to allow dual-booting. This bootloader uses only the MBR of the hard disk, and will continue to function even if the BeOS is uninstalled.
R5.01 was mainly a stability fix for R5 Professional, fixing some deadlocks in drivers and critical servers. However, additional POSIX support was again added for networking, although the update neglected to include the newer headers to use some of these functions - they were only available in an updated Developer Tools for Personal Edition download.
The long version is that if you pre-install on a hard drive, set the bios for ide compatibility instead of sata, have exactly 1GB of ram and use the default zbeos boot loader you can boot to a running beos desktop - but no keyboard or mouse. Reducing ram to 512mb or using the ram limiting bootloader is for whatever reason incompatible with those thinkpads - you can boot but to a blank blue screen - no tracker or deskbar. EDIT: This is not true, at least for 512mb physical RAM. Read below.
This version of BeOS is the Personal Edition, which can be downloaded freely from the Internet and installed under Windows. Under Windows 95 and Windows 98 you can just double click an icon to exit Windows and start this version of BeOS. On ME or NT 4 or later you can use a boot floppy to start the installed BeOS.
(Update: this project appears to be gone.)EOS is an operating system that intends to be able to run programs fromWindows, Linux,MS-DOS,BEOS, andAmigaOS. You thus don't need to worry about whatoperating system the program is designed for, just download it and run it. It is based on Linux andFreeBSD, and uses code from various otherprojects like WINE and ReactOS (see other entries on theWindows clones page).
Your instructions make the installation process much more lengthy than necessary. It is completely unnecessary to burn any CD's -- just allow VMware to attach directly to the ISO files you've downloaded.

Well, it's been a busy past few months. I managed to find time between finishing school for the year, finding a new job, moving to a new place, and writing music here and there to do a comparison of BeOS R5 Professional versus the freely-downloadable R5 Personal Edition. I know there's a number of readers out there who are curious about the new features in R5, and just what the difference between the two R5 versions is. You might be surprised to find out who won this little shoot-out (hey, no skipping to the end, cheater!)
GNU Emacs for Windows can be downloaded from a nearby GNU mirror; or the main GNU FTP server. Mostly simply, download and run the emacs-version-installer.exe which will install Emacs and create shortcuts for you. Alternately, download emacs-version.zip then unzip, preserving the directory structure. You can then run bin\runemacs.exe or create a desktop shortcut to bin\runemacs.exe and start Emacs by double-clicking on that shortcut's icon.
1, Lib hunting - You need install a piece of software really quickly & guess what your missing a lib or something. You spend the next 3 hours trying to track down & download an obscure lib.... Gentoo's emerge app goes someway to relive this.
ME SW: The Intel ME software components that must be installed depend on the system's specific hardware and firmware features. You can determine the version of the ME SW in your system by checking the Control Panel->Programs and Features list. If the version of ME in your system is not high enough, download and install the most current version. The Intel ME installer detects the system's capabilities and automatically installs the relevant drivers and applications.
Contrary to its name, BeOS message scripting doesn't refer to a scriptinglanguage such a Perl or Awk. BeOS scripting is a format for passingmessages between applications. Your programs already support scripting asmany classes in the Interface Kit have it built in. The reallyinteresting aspect of scripting is that applications can inter-operatewithout necessarily having to be specially designed to work together. Thesample app, Thesaurus demonstrates this principle. You can download itfrom here: 350c69d7ab
