				   5. INSTALL
       <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

* Requirements:
- 586-133Mhz with 2Mb of free memory and a lot of RAM.(128Mb recommanded)

One of these operating systems is needed:
1 Linux or xBSD with SDL-1.2.4 or more. (www.libsdl.org)
2 Microsoft Windows(tm) 95 or highter with DirectX installed( >5)

LINUX :
One word: for the beginners, use your favorite rpm installer.
But the best way to do it, in one word (again): rpm -i sfourmi-{version}.rpm
For the people who don't like rpm's write to me and I'll consider a tgz
version.
Then copy /usr/doc/sfourmi-{version}/sfourmi.ini in your $HOME directory.
This file is NEEDED to configure and run the program.

WINDOWS :
Extract the zip's file in a directory. Just double click on the executable and
it should work fine.

			  6. What is/is not SFourmis ?
       <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

	  - SFourmi is NOT a game. It could be as fun as game but the
    interactivity is limited. Maybe, it will become a true game in the near
				  future. :-p

     - SFourmi IS a simulation of artificial life that tries to simulates a
     real ant's life by copying the reality. Each ant is self-dependant and
			  can communicate with others.
