      Sure you can.  It's on the main screen.  I don't have it in front of me, but it's like this:
      install GAG on a floppy
      put it in your drive
      boot from it
      choose 'S' for setup
      Add your operating system
      press '<is it H?>' to save it to your harddrive.

      It's very intuitive.  Just run it and you'll figure it out.

        Oops...maybe I misunderstood the question.  Can you help me understand the purpose of installing it without a reboot?

      no no !!!!
      I don't have any floppy drive (notebook). I create boot cd and I boot from it, but no GAG cd for example (win98se startdisk). How I execute the main screen of GAG installation from directory (c:\gag\ or e:\gag - without create boot media)
      from dos. Is there any possibility to run it?

        Hi Gerovy,
          Do you have access to a CDRW?  If so, you could write the GAG .iso with it and make your own boot CD. 

        As I understand it, GAG cannot be 'executed' from within Windows.  It needs to be installed on boot media.  Are there any other choices listed in your laptop's BIOS setup screen for boot devices?
