    I'll assume you already have all of the source unarchived and you
use QuickBASIC 4.5... Here goes!!

    First, use the LINK utility that came with QB, and type this:

LINK /Q CSRASM,,,QBXQLB.LIB 'assuming csrasm.obj & qbxqlb.lib are in the
                            'same directory

Then use the LIB utility, and follow the directions that are in
QLBLIB.TXT (I can't remember the intricate details that good 'ole LIB

Then load QB in like this:

Then hit shift F5. If you have a mouse driver installed, and a color VGA
or EGA then you should see a cursor within a second or so.

If you need help with any other problem, just yell! Glad to help out.


(p.s. to extract the archive, you got to have a copy of LHA, which is an
archive program similar to PKZIP and can probably be downloaded from a
BBS near you. just thought I'd tell you this just in case you didn't
know how to decompress it.)
