- make sure the FPC dir is the first in your path. (\pp\bin\win32)

To install

- make a copy of the 1.0.10 directory. (e.g. c:\pp19)
- rename the pp19\bin\win32 to pp19\bin\i386-win32
- go back to the fpc/ (CVS) directory
- type make 'install INSTALL_PREFIX=c:\pp19'
- copy the binary files in the CVS over the ones in the pp19\bin\i386-win32
- rename pp to pp10, and then pp19 to pp
- change your path configuration to point to c:\pp\bin\i386-win32 instead
   of \pp\bin\i386\win32
- post edit the -Fu line in fpc.cfg to point to c:\pp\units\i386-win32\*
