I know I could probably dig up these answers myself, but it's easier to just ask you experts. Besides, you might even voluteer some usefull information I would take several crashes and reinstalls to figure out for myself. :oops:

1: Does eCS install with a boot manager and cooperate with other operating systems (cooperating systems?) like OS/2?

2: Can I install it to a FAT32 partition and boot from FAT32?

3: Does eCS have it's own version of Win-OS/2?

4: Maybe I should have asked this first. What are the recommended system requirements?

It can install with a boot manager. There is one that comes with it. It would depend on what other operating systems is also installed.

2: Can I install it to a FAT32 partition and boot from FAT32?

I believe FAT32 is an option among the different choices but you might want to check with the forum at http://www.os2world.com

3: Does eCS have it's own version of Win-OS/2?

It is not only part of OS/2 but also part of eCS. There is also ODIN at Netlabs which is another effort to run Win programs in OS/2 and eCS. http://odin.netabls.org http://www.netlabsl.org

4: Maybe I should have asked this first. What are the recommended system requirements?

One can get those at http://www.ecomstation.com and at http://www.os2world.com One can also try the demo cd which allows you to try eCS without having to install it.

There is a very useful and very active forum at http://www.os2world.com It covers both OS/2 Warp and eComStation. 8)

I hope this helps. 8)
