For the benefit of anyone else who's having trouble downloading this product, after you click the Download link, FIRST you get a page where you choose the product to download and a site to download from, THEN you get to the page where you choose an operating system. Maybe I'm just slow today, but it took me awhile to work that out. I certainly think it's very poor site navigation design, especially given that the first page gives no indication that the product is designed for more than just Unix systems.

BTW, I tried the HTMLDOC product and was unimpressed with the results. It didn't do a good job with a typical simple 2-column table layout page, and couldn't find an external css file, so the resulting PDF was a bit garbled. I played around with the settings a bit, without getting any better results, but possibly I missed something. It might would work fine on a simple single-column HTML file with no external style sheet; I didn't test that.

No. It may not be clear from the top page, but go to the download menus,
scroll about a bit in the select-an-OS list, and you'll find versions for
95, 98, ME, NT 4 and Win 2K.
