Install Game

To install/play the game, you have 3 possibilities:

A) Use a real CD ROM:
	Put the game CD in your CD drive (e.g. drive E:)
	Then type inside DOSBox:  mount d: E:\
	After this, you can run Windows 3.11 again, and install the game using the File Manager on drive d:
B) Put everything in a single directory
	Put all CD contents in a directory, e.g. "C:\Panic" or "C:\BA"
	Then mount this directory, e.g. by typing  mount d: C:\Panic
	After this, you can run Windows 3.11 again, and install the game using the File Manager on drive d:
	Also, you can put the contents of all 3 CDs in this directory C:\Panic . Then you don't have to switch CDs anymore.
C) Use ISO file(s):
	Inside DOSBox, type:  IMGMOUNT D .iso -t iso
	(Replace  with the path of your ISO file)
