I'm looking at user-guide-3.html from the user guide at
The usage of installation program is:
sbminst [-t theme] [-d drv] [-b backup_file] [-u backup_file]
-t theme select the theme to be used, in which the theme could be:
us = English theme de = German theme
hu = Hungarian theme zh = Chinese theme
ru = Russian theme cz = Czech theme
es = Spanish theme fr = French theme
pt = Portuguese theme
or a filename of user customized theme.
-d drv set the drive that you want to install Smart
/dev/fd0 is the first floppy driver,
/dev/hda is the first IDE harddisk driver.
/dev/sda is the first SCSI harddisk driver.
0 is the first floppy drive
128 is the first hard drive;
-c disable CD-ROM booting feature;
-b backup_file backup the data that will be overwrited for
-u backup_file uninstall Smart BootManager, should be used alone;
-y do not ask any question or warning.
for example, use command 'sbminst -t zh -d /dev/hda -b sbm-bak.dat'
under linux to install a Chinese version to the first hard disk and
backup the original data to file sbm-bak.dat.
So, under DOS/Windows to install it onto a floppy disk, I would think it
sbminst -t us -d 0
This would be run from the folder containing the sbminst program I'd
have thought (I have never used this program myself).
