Installation Manuel
This is the place to go for help with installation. First, go to Next, click on the reffered download (or just click the "download" button on the middle right hand side), which should be Alpha 1.2.1. Wait for that to load (won't take very long). Then just follow the instructions, and your set.

This is the place to go for help with the program itself. After the program has installed, click "Start">"All Programs">"ODOS Alpha">"ODOS Alpha". Then, a sound will play. After this, just click on the picture that has what you want to do.

The pictures stand for:

The hard drive with the windows logo on it is for Skydrive.
The "E" that looks like the IE logo is for accesing the Internet.
The icon that says "Wolfram Alpha" on it is for calculations, web metrics, and all common knowledge.
Finally, the "GAME" icon will take you to a screen asking if you would like to visit MSN Zone Games or Yahoo! Games.
