   2. Create an installation guide (which follows a logical order) for a junior technician to use to
      install and upgrade software correctly. It should include the steps needed to remove the software
      installation or software upgrade.
                   i. Use numbered bullet points
                  ii. Use Microsoft Excel 2000 (installation) and Microsoft Excel 2003 (upgrade) in

                                                                                                 (P3)


   3. In the manual (using a table) explain the advantages and disadvantages of having a clearly
      defined software installation process. Refer to task 2 and explain why each step is important.
                                                                                                  (M2)
   4. In your manual explain the concept of data integrity.
      Write a step-by-step guide for backing up data.
      Write a step-by-step guide for testing the integrity of their data.
                                                                                                  (M3)
