Re: Installing Octave

I've been running the binary 2.1.50 on windows for years,
and of course it is way out of date, but every quirk is
known, even know when it will hang the system.  

One system with Windows XP has no internet access.  The
system with Windows 98 has internet access, but I'm very
nervous about mucking up what is working so well.  

To install the new version of octave, may I leave the old
binary version installed?  And run the one I choose?  That
way I won't be dead in the water if the script, or
something, doesn't work quite right.  And  be free to
explore the advantages of the "new" version of octave?  

I'm in the middle of a project and don't have time to play
with the tools, just use them.
