1. Download the binary file from RCDrummand's web site (if no binary file is available for your platform, download the source code instead).

2. Linux users: Extract the file(s) to a directory of your choice, such as your home folder,from the file as follows:

bunzip2 e-uae_0.8.29-WIP4_linux-i586_sdl.tar.bz2

tar -x e-uae_0.8.29-WIP4_linux-i586_sdl.tar

NB: If your Unix supports file extraction with your file manager window (Konqueror) then just open the file and copy and paste the contents of the archive to the directory of your choice.

You will get a file called uae and documents including Changelog and COPYING and two folders: amiga, docs.

3. AmigaOS users: Extract the files using an archiver program such as unarc to a folder on your hard disk or use lha to extract the files:

lha x e-uae-0.8.28_amigaos4-ppc.lha or

lha x e-uae-0.8.28_amigaos4-ppc_sdl.lha

4. Next you will need the kick.rom file(s) from your real amiga using transrom tool supplied with uae or from the Amiga Forever CD and put them into a new folder called roms in the same directory where uae is stored. If using Amiga Forever roms then also copy the rom.key file as well.

5. Create more folders to store your adfs floppy images and hard disk files.

6. Linux: Run uae by typing ./uae (dot slash uae) to bring up the about screen.
AmigaOS: Run program called uae or uae-sdl (depending on version) from the uae folder.

7. You may invoke uae with the following options rather than just use the gui:

-h : Print out a help text.
-f file : Load a configuration file
-s opt=val : Set the emulator's option "opt" to value "val".

e.g. uae -f a500.config
