Question OS3.5 instructions guide links goes to OS3.9 guide

Hello! Long time no see! I haven’t logged in since December or so. Can’t remember.

I am trying to install OS3.5 on my android Tablet using UAE4ARM by following the instructions. Although when I am asked to read a guide, It links me to the Install OS3.9 guide instead of 3.5, is this normal?

I'm not sure what guide you're talking about. Both 3.5 and 3.9 came with printed instructions for the correct installation procedure, and there are some significant differences between them. 3.5 needs 3.1 installed first, and a pre-installation step carried out on that 3.1 installation before rebooting and installing 3.5 proper. 3.9 uses a boot floppy instead of modifying an existing 3.1 installation so that it can be installed onto an empty partition.

I am talking about these ones https://classicwb.abime.net/classicw...ctionsos35.htm
Shouldn’t the “please read this guide” link go to OS3.5 instead of OS3.9?

What are you trying to accomplish by running 3.5 instead of 3.9? 3.5 was quickly superseded by 3.9 and offers no advantages over its successor.

And stay away from the ClassicWB rubbish. Use it for inspiration if you wish, but it's basically like copying someone else's worn-out hard drive.

The guides on my homepage are quite old. WinUAE has got some features which make it much more easy to install software from installation media.

Here is a series of screenshots which should give you an idea how to install OS 3.5 on WinUAE: http://thomas-rapp.homepage.t-online.de/os35uae/
