It's possible Maxis didn't bother to update the manuals. They're budget rereleases.
Anyway, I've tested on my Pentium 2 system, and to my surprise I managed to get SimEarth, SimFarm, and A-Train installed and running without a hitch. Although part of the video on A-Train is screwed up: all the isometric tiles show up in mostly black and some white (probably a video card issue).
SimLife...installed, but BSODs upon running from within Windows 98SE, and restarting in MS-DOS mode gives no sound or mouse. Running SimLife's set-up utility after installations screws up the installation.
I wonder why I couldn't get them installed when I tried a few years ago. 😕 So please ignore everything I wrote above about the DIMM issue. 😒
