[Rpcemu] RISC OS 6 install instructions - revised

Having just been through some clean installs of 6.20 under
RPCEmu in the last week I've this morning hit a snag with the networking
which I will investigate sometime over the weekend and document if it has
implications for the updated installation instructions.
Accessing files commonly between several RPCEmu installations is something
I've been doing. I have a similar setup to share common data on my Windows
7/XP/Ubuntu tri-boot system.
My solution has been to clone the RPCEmu installations and rename them so I
* RPCEmu - 402
* RPCEmu - 439
* RPCEMu - 519
* RPCEmu - 620
Within these I have replaced the contents of the hostfs directory with the
version-appropriate !Boot and applications directories. This also
preserves the individual emulator configurations and the CMOS RAM settings
which is a necessity.
My Data and Installation directories are within a 5th directory called
"RPCEmu - common". These then have NTFS "junctions" made from them to a
point within the hostfs directory of each of the emulations.
This works perfectly and delivers high convenience with low cost (disc
space is cheap - especially for RPCEmu itself). The only thing that
junctions cannot do is to link across filing systems such as network drives
(at least those that don't have a virtual drive letter) but in that
situation I use !Omni or !LanMan98 which work very well indeed and store
files with exactly the same naming syntax used by hostFS so you can drag
'n' drop them in a Windows/Ubuntu environment.
I use this utility:
to create my junctions and it is exemplary.
