Thank you so much for replying Dan.
I have downloaded vagrant/Oracle box, I got as far as seeing a black screen with a keyboard locked notice.
Is Atom a virtual machine? How do I create it in Oracle? Do I use the file that I created in my word folder: atom-2.4.1.tar.gz? What do I do with the black screen?
I have played around with the AToM demo, but I want to research it further on my desktop. I have worked in small rural museums for years and am just finishing my studies in Cultural Resource Management with an introduction to archives. As a museum contractor, I want to be able to introduce AToM to clients, but I have to know a bit more about it before I can suggest that they install it.
I don’t know anything about computer programing, so I assume that in an archives setting, AToM will need to be set up by someone who knows their way around computers. I want to set up Atom on my laptop to see how user-friendly it is and how much maintenance it takes. I have also heard that templates can be downloaded, filled out and uploaded to the user organization’s website.
I know that the goal of Archives Canada was to create a RAD standard-open source platform that could be accessed by archives of all sizes. AToM could benefit small rural archives but it has to be user-friendly, for the most part, seniors with little computer knowledge, manage these organizations.
If Atom is complicated to download and run, it will miss a large target demographic of the small rural archive. On the other hand, if Atom were easy to install it could create a revolution in the ability of small archives to share their holdings.
Thank again for your help. Elaine

Dan, thank you for giving me answers in layman’s terms, I will explore the links you provided and let you know how it works out. I am intrigued by Atom and would love to spread the word about it to other small archives.
Hi Dan…Its Elaine again,
I am on step 4…I have made a folder on my desk top and put hashicorp, atom and oracle into it.
I have typed “vagrant init artefatual/atom” into the black command prompt screen…but it does not work. I am not sure how to initialize the directory.
Please advise. El

Hi Dan, virtual box or atom initializes….then the screen goes black and I get this error message: Fatal: No bootable medium found! System halted.
I have been to this point before, not sure what is up. I un-installed and reinstalled everything, but this time I went with 32 bit instead of 64.
