Smart Install of Database Services From Basic Configuration Services

       A program is disclosed that eliminates redundant
questions to the user by passing user input from Basic Configuration
Services to the Database Manager install program.

      Basic Configuration Services is a utility shipped with OS/2*
Extended Edition 1.2 which assists the user in generating a
configuration file for use with the Database Manager Remote Data
Services function.

      During Basic Configuration Services, the user will specify
whether he is attached to a Local Area Network, and also what type of
configuration (Server or Requester) he will need.

      Although Basic Configuration Services is a separate process
from the actual install routine, the user information for Database
Services is passed via a "trigger file" to the Database Services
install routine. Install then uses the information to bypass any
redundant questions. Thus, the configuration and installation process
become more "seamless" to the user.
