Please don't send HTML to Statalist. 

The disks for Stata 3.0 contain 
an uncompressed executable and a program 
crclib.exe that unpacks everything else. 
You don't say what operating system you are using 
but it is presumably not Macintosh. 

As of the end of this month, StataCorp 
will only support Stata 8 and Stata 9, 
so an upgrade is indeed advisable. 

For DOS, the command prompt incantations follow: 

md \stata
cd \stata

* insert disk 1 
copy a:*.exe 
crclib -i -r a:disk1 \stata

* insert disk 2 
crclib -i -r a:disk2 \stata

* insert disk 3 
crclib -i -r a:disk3 \stata 
md \stata\ado
crclib -i -r a:ado \stata\ado

Yes, I know it's really old ... but I own it and my boss won't pay for an upgrade so I'm using it until I can convince him that I really, REALLY need Stata 9 ...
Anyway, had a computer crash and am having to reinstall everything.  Don't remember for certain how to install this plus my reference manuals seem to have quietly walked away from my office so I can't look it up.
Does anyone recall what the trick is to install the system from diskette?  By chance does anyone have a set of version 3 manuals that they'd be willing to sell me to replace the ones I've "lost"?
