    The distribution is provided under the terms of the LaTeX

    To install the package:
o run: latex viking.ins, which will generate:
       vik*.mf files
       *.fd files
o run: latex viking.dtx              or: pdflatex viking.dtx
o run: makeindex -s gind.ist viking
o run: latex viking.dtx              or: pdflatex viking.dtx
o Print viking.dvi (or viking.pdf) for a hardcopy of the package manual
o Move the generated files to locations where LaTeX will find them.
    For example: the vik*.mf files to .../texmf/fonts/source/public/viking
                 the *.fd and .sty files to /texmf/tex/latex/local/viking
    On a teTeX distribution you might also have to add the following
    line to texmf/fontname/special.map:
      fut10.mf     public    viking
    On a teTeX distribution remember to run texhash after moving the files.

    On a MikTeX distribution you will have to refresh the filename database
    from the MikTeX options program.
o run: latex try_vik                or pdflatex try_vik
