SECTION ONEGETTING STARTED
TFX is highly compressed on the program disks and remains highly compressed once installed on the hard disk, taking up 12 MB of space instead of 40 MB. All data is decompressed in real time. Normal compression programs will not be able to compress it further.
TFX requires a 386 or 486 IBM PC compatible with either 4 MB of extended memory or 4 MB of extra disk space if the RAM is not present. RAM is used wherever possible, but it is not necessary. Virtual Memory. TFX will run from a Superstore drive or any form of compression software, e.i., Stacker and DoubleSpace. However, it must be noted that compression software may cause installation to fail because the program assumes there is sufficient free hard disk space.
The more disk space and machine RAM available, the faster TFX will run. "
