Korrnews Installation Guide

While Korrnews from Version 4.1 also runs in English, the documentation sofar is only in German. ( An English documentation can be found here (for Version 3.x) or here (unfinished version of 4.1)
DO NOT BE SCARED by the reference to scripting at that site. The Assistant together with the new version of Hamster removes the need for that (see installation sequence below) There also is a link to an English HeaderDef.doc file which contains a lot of information.

It is not difficult to install.
