This is a ROM softloader patch for RiscPC and A7000 machines. It includes a
development release of the RISC OS ROM image which can be installed into
your boot sequence as follows:
* Ensure you have an up to date !System containing SharedCLibrary 5.46 or
later. An updated !System for 26 bit operating systems is available from
http://www.riscosopen.org/content/downloads/other-zipfiles
follow the instructions inside the archive to install this.
Remember that although RISC OS 5 runs in 32 bit mode, the early part of
the softloading is on the original 26 bit host operating system.
* Open your main hard disc (left click on the hard disc iconbar icon)
* Run the configure application by left double-clicking '!Boot'
* Left click on the 'Boot' icon to open the "Boot sequence" configuration
window
* Left click on the 'Install' icon to open the "Boot Merge" window
* Drag the !Boot directory from this zip file to the merge window
* Click on the 'Merge' button to install the softloader
You can now reboot in order to try the latest development version of RISC OS
for the RiscPC/A7000. You will be prompted when the machine boots as to
whether you would like to softload or continue booting with your normal
(installed) version of RISC OS. Press 'y' or 'n' on the keyboard to indicate
your choice when asked.
Please note: this is a development release of the operating system and is
supplied in an entirely untested state. The softload tool is also largely
untested at present so please send a report of any problems you encounter to
info@riscosopen.org.
For a list of known issues with this ROM image, please see the ROOL wiki:

An important note about CMOS RAM
================================
The OMAP port of RISC OS now has the ability to use CMOS settings that are
saved to the SD card alongside the ROM image. However, RISC OS currently
lacks the ability to write updated settings back to the card. Therefore if
you make any configuration changes that will affect CMOS RAM (e.g. switching
to boot from drive 4 instead of 0) then you must make sure you manually save
the settings using *SaveCMOS and copy the new file onto the SD card. For more
information about how the CMOS file is handled, please see the !SDCreate help
file.
