Using Kernel Load
Last updated at 10:06 pm UTC on 1 March 2008
Using Installer with KernelImage

Installer only has one prerequisite, 'Network', and so can be used
earlier in the KernelImage loading process than Monticello.

Beginning with KernelImage 7061c from http://www.comtalk.eu/Squeak/98

Step. 1 is download, unzip and manually install the Network package

(FileStream readOnlyFileNamed: 'Network/snapshot/source.st') fileIn.

Step.2. bootstrap Installer from a web url.

(HTTPSocket httpGet: 'installer.pbwiki.com/f/Installer.st') fileIn.

Step 3. now the fun starts... since installer can be pointed at a web
page to run a script embedded in html. (At this stage only .st and .cs
support is installed)
Installer installUrl: 'http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/KernelLoadMonticello'.
