Unpack the archive to the directory and ensure that pkunzip is in your path or copy it to the exitilus directory. Run INSTALL.EXE from the exitilus directory. This will create three directories, PNEWS, ANSI and QUESTS and unarchive them. If it does not, for some reason (It didn't on my BBS) simply unpack the archives in thier respective directories (ANSI & QUESTS). After INSTALL runs, it will launch EXSETUP. From there, you can set Game Options and the Node configurations.
