Read-only Attribute Setting

I've copied several files from the Windows NT Server 4.0 distribution CD-ROM to my hard disk. However, I can't seem to edit the .ini file. How can I edit this .ini file?

Files that you copy from CD-ROM to your hard disk are always marked with a Read-only attribute. To disable the Read-only attribute, go to the file's Properties sheet, select the General tab, and clear the Read-only check box. A more direct method is to go to the directory into which you've copied the files and type

attrib *.* -S -H -R

Then, press Enter. You can now edit any file.
