of Netscape 7.0, for those using just about any Gecko based web browser
on Windows, that supports the XPI (cross platform installer) method of
installing addons. I call it the "DJGM-i Distro Auto Install System"
Basically, you click on the XPI link for any of the DJGM-i Distro "editions",
and your Gecko based browser will automatically download and fire up the
distro's installer program. It will also leave a copy of the distro's *.exe file,
so you can store it any spare folder on tyour HDD, for future use, like just
in case you find the need to re-install.
For this to work, you will need to make sure that the "Software Installation"
option is checked in the Preference of your current Gecko based browser.
(To check this, go - Edit - Preferences - Advanced - Software Installation)
For those of you wanting to try the DJGM-i Distros, and you haven't already
got any Gecko based browser on your PC, don't worry. The DJGM-i Distros
will still be available as ordinary *.exe files you can download for later use.
UPDATE (19th Feb 2003)
I've temporarily suspended the DJGM-i Auto Install System. This is
because the SD701 FTP server, where the auto install xpi files are
usually hosted, is due to be relocated to a new datacentre soon.
The DJGM-i Auto Install will be re-instated when the SD701 FTP
server have been relocated and returns to normal operation.
