You do not really need to install ETYMO: just copy it in an apropriate directory - that's it. I recommend you the following download procedure:
Now, ETYMO should be ready to run (actually the changes you made to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file don't have any effect until you restart your computer, but this is not really necessary - just "read" ahead). How to make it run
Open a DOS window (START -> PROGRAMS -> MS-DOS-PROMPT). Set the window to full screen size (if it's not, click with the RIGHT mouse button on the MS-DOS icon which is on the bar at the bottom of the screen, choose PROPERTIES -> SCREEN -> FULL SCREEN). Now, make sure you're on the drive where you installed ETYMO (otherwise change the drive by typing "c:", "d:", "e:" or whatever). Make sure you're in the uppermoast directory by entering "CD\". Now enter the directory ETYMO by writing "CD ETYMO". If you didn't restart your computer after downloading the files: enter SET COMSPEC=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM (like above). Enter "EEDIT" to run the editor or "ETYMO RULES.TXT" to run the program with the spanish examples. It should work...!
