 +
              RT-11 V5.4F
 +
 +
Installation of RT-11 Version 5.4F is complete and you are now running
 +
RT-11 from your system volume,
 +
 +
Your system volume is your working volume if you have used the
 +
automatic installation (AI) procedure. If you have installed RT-11 using
 +
that procedure. DIGITAL recommends you verify the correct operation of
 +
your system's software using the VERIFY verification procedure. 
 +
To do this, enter the command:
 +
 +
                            IND VERIFY
 +
 +
Note that VERIFY should be performed  only after the distribution
 +
media have been backed up.  This was accomplished as part
 +
of automatic installation on  all  RL02,  RX02,  TK50, and  RX50
 +
based systems,  including the  MicroPDP-11 and the Professional
 +
300.  If you have not completed automatic installation, you must
 +
perform a manual backup before using VERIFY.  Note also,  VERIFY
 +
is NOT supported on RX01 diskettes,    DECtape I or II,  or the
 +
Professional 325.
 +
 +
DIGITAL also  recommends  you  read  the  file V5NOTE.TXT, which
 +
contains information  formalized too late to be included  in the
 +
Release Notes.  V5NOTE.TXT can be TYPED or PRINTED.
