You do not install anything on the hercules emulator ... icon_cool.gif
You install something on the system running under the hercules emulator

the instructions on the link seem pretty clear to me

anyway you might be better off installing the SYSCPK volume

and You will get more replies asking on the groups.io forums

hercules-390.groups.io
H390-MVS.groups.io

I can't say this from personal experience, but if you have loaded OS/360 you also have installed the OS/360 sort/merge.

SM023 (its formal designation) is no DFSORT, but it is the lineal father of Syncsort. For its day it was outstanding.

I started mainframes with 7040 IBSYS/IBJOB. There was a sort component in IBJOB, but it was very hard to use. With disk SORTWK data sets, SM023 was easy to use, even for trivial (as in, say, a half dozen records) sorts, and JCL made it easy to link sorting with execution of other programs.

More likely the IBSYS in Enrico's link is for the 7090 version, not the 7040 version I remember. The download link in Enrico's post did not work for me. 7040 and 7090 IBSYS were similar, but by no means identical.
