Java 1.1.8 (Base & Swing):
Run each package at the root of the Java install drive, with the "-di -ov" parameters.
Be CERTAIN to have those command-line parameters on each when you run each!
Make sure that NS Navigator is closed.
NS will load x:\index.htm. Choose a language.
If the second page hangs at "Resolving the Feature Install Variable", reboot and try again.
If you get "Cannot find the RESPONSE file . . . ", you didn't have NS closed before you started.
Choose "Guided Path". The correct options should already be checked.
Install the Java update(s)
Don't forget to reboot after installation.
Run DELINST.cmd at each installation finish for cleanup of unzipped files.
Manually delete each file from the root when finished with each.

Once you have installed the new Java 1.1.8, you can get rid of JavaOS2, the old version:
Click on the Drives object, then click on the Drive C: object to get the Drive C: tree.
Expand the OS2 object,
Expand the Install object,
Expand Installed Features,
Open Install Object - Inventory,
Highlight the Java object and click on Uninstall (don't uninstall Java11, as that is your new Java, uninstall only "Java".),
Check CONFIG.sys for the presence of any reference to x:\JAVAOS2, and remove if necessary.

TCP/IP 4.02 after MPTS8620, which updates TCP/IP to v4.2.
14-Jul-99 Initial release
Removed PEER8412, too buggy
Added PEER8410 as a replacement
Removed MPST8423, not needed
Added link for PMView v1.05
Moved MPTS8620 after PEER8410
Made TCP/IP v4.02w pkg optional
Added TCP/IP INETVER reporting differences for v4.0x vs v4.1/v4.2.
Added MPTS8620 file replacement advisory about the NIC driver.
Updated to include Java 1.1.8 GA
Removed Java 1.1.7C refresh
Updated Feature Installer 1.24->1.25, and link now points to catalog
(old link to FI page would not allow download unless you came in through the "front door" of the catalog).
Same for NS/2, PluginPak, and Java.
IBM removed IP08410 from their ftp site, and we all know 8412 doesn't work, so I added a link to
my ftp server for it. Also updated ZTB link for v1.80.
Changed NS 4.04 references to 4.61
Fixed FP12 link
Added notes about Peer8410: "no route to host", won't install if Peer not installed.
Added Java 1.1.8 extensions (Swing)
Updated links to Al's reorg'd ftp server.
Added updated Java1.1.8 refresh links.

of document which contained duplicate links to be maintained for no good
Added note about \mptn\bin\setup.cmd
Updated references to FP12 to FP13
Removed MPTS8610/8620, which are for TCP/IP v4.1.
Added MPTS8423/8425, which are for TCP/IP v3.x/4.0 (W3C/W4)
Added SYS1719 and LAx/netx notes in TCP/IP setup
Added alternate ART/registration removal method, from TC Carr
Added SET KILLFEATUREENABLED=ON to CONFIG.SYS mods list
Added note about new DSPINSTL.exe for FP13, fixes Matrox drivers install (supposedly)

Added note about os2jre java runtime extension
Added "/ra" to dskxtrct.exe command line to "replace all"
Added "(Fix 3)" to emxrt citation
Added "SET USE_HOSTS_FIRST=1" to the CONFIG.SYS file.
I'd considered adding this line anyway, as if tells OS/2 TCP/IP to
check the contents of the x:\MPTN\ETC\hosts file first, before going
off to the "regular" DNS.
Added notes about modifying CONFIG.X
Updated the Netscape install reference; the 128-bit version is not called "COMM461.exe", not "XR".
Added optional bidirectional printer port driver PAR1284.SYS
Changed UNZIP to the version that supports 'shrink' and crypto.
Changed self-reference links from numeric IPs to asavage.dyndns.org

Added more archivers to be added to \ZIP .
Error: F&PS (Peer): SYS3175 in PEERINST.PGM at 00065253
Over the years, IBM and folks in the NGs have made us
aware that File & Print Services installation (Peer) from the CD in
Warp4 does not work correctly if you have a line in the CONFIG.SYS which
is longer than 256 characters. What is not as well known or discussed
is that *any* line longer than 256 characters will trigger the subject
Most folks have posted that it is the PATH or LIBPATH
lines that cause the error, but in my case, a reinstall of Peer with the
PATH/LIBPATH lines drastically shortened did not help. The clue,
as posted Aug-98 by Ken Taylor, is in x:\IBMINST\LOGS\LOCINSTU\LOCAL.L2,
which read in part:
CAS0029: CASINSTL Warning! One or more lines in E:\CONFIG.SYS exceed 255 characters.
I had several copies of PATH/LIBPATH/DPATH/HELP lines,
left there by Tyra/2, a CONFIG.SYS maintenance utility. After removing
those lines, then cutting the PATH/LIBPATH/DPATH/HELP lines in three pieces
(and putting the "discarded" parts in shortened REM lines, to be glued
back on later), I was able to continue Peer installation without the PEERINST.PGM
Note that running <CDROM>:\CID\IMG\IBMPEER\PEERRMT.EXE,
an installation approach which has been commonly advised in the NGs, did
not recreate the Connections|Network|NetworkServices|SharedResources&NetworkConnections
Running <CDROM>:\IBMINST\NPCONFIG.EXE would not complete
installation, reporting that it couldn't generate a file whose target location
was on the CD drive!
Finally, as Mr. Knott has advised, running <CDROM>:\INSTALL.CMD
will allow the complete Peer/MPTS/TCP/IP installation to complete, with
all objects in place on the desktop etc. To which the various fixpacks
can then be applied:
