This is OS/2 Warp 4 Fixpack 15, prepackaged
for hard drive (or network) install. You do
not need any other files (except unzip to
unzip it, of course :-).

1. Unzip the file. If you're using PKUNZIP,
then you'll need to specify -d to create
2. Run install.cmd.
The remainder of this is a guide to using
the IBM Service program. I've included this
because some of the prompts are not very
helpful. But there's nothing very tricky to do.
Guide to running Service
At the first window click Service.
If it says "no serviceable products" then
the program wasn't able to find OS/2, which
it does by locating the syslevel file.
At the second window, enter a directory in
the 'archive' column - backups of files
will be stored here - then click OK.
If you've installed a fixpack before, then
it will instead ask for a backup directory,
but it serves basically the same purpose.
Click continue at the 'locked files' window.
Let it happen!
If it asks about newer files, then 'cancel'
means: 'no', leave my current, newer, file.
Generally, I don't allow it to replace
newer files, but some fixpacks do require
you to. Read the readme.1st!
If it crashes, start again, without rebooting
Reboot before doing anything else
It may reboot again before completing the boot.
This is normal as it may have replaced system
