EAD 101.3

I downloaded and installed the NoteTab software onto another computer to
make sure it wasn't too confusing. When asked during download, I
usually have it save the file to my desktop and run it from there. The
other option is to run it from the web browser. There is not a problem
with that, but if something happens later and you have to reload the
software, then you have to find it and download it again.

Installing was just a matter of clicking next, or I agree and next until
it is done. I had the shortcut saved to the desktop so it's easy to access.

You will find the ead notetab file on the EAD Help Pages
. Do
a Ctrl-F (find) on NoteTab and click on *ead2002notetab.exe *and save it
to your hard drive, then run it. As the Cookbook says, it will create
and save to the folder C:\eadcb. All your files will be saved with in a
subfolder of this called EADFiles. It is important to remember to
backup this folder regularly along with your "My document" files. It is
no fun to have to redo a finding aid, or anything else for that matter. 🙂

Good luck. I hope someone starts reading these and asking questions.
