One thing I think intimidates people about the IBM manuals is that they tend
to be a bit <g> unfriendly to anyone who doesn't know much about the topic
the manual covers.  The words "hermetic" and "cabbalistic" come to mind.
What I do to get at the frisbee manuals is to always have an extra session
going that is dedicated to Info Seeker.  It's not much worse than going to
the bookshelf and discovering that someone else has the manual you want.  Of
course Info Seeker is only referred to as a tool euphemistically, but that's
another story.

Has anyone had any luck printing the manuals?  My experience using both PC
software and the 400 is that it's impossible to preserve page breaks and
things are often clipped on the right side.
