The following debug session will alow you to copy the Newsroom files to any
disk and run them from that disk.
However, the Newroom program will still want you to enter the clip-art disks
in drive A: and any banner, panel, or wire service disks in will also have to
be put in drive A:.
None of the disks need any copy protection, so therefore can be copied from
disk to disk and still be run.

Just follow the instructions carefully.

First copy all the Newsroom files on to a clean disk.
Also copy the Debug program on to the same disk.

That's all there is to it.  Now just copy it over to any disk you want and
run it from there.  Just remember that it is going to look for certain files
on the drive that you told it before in the debug session.
