These are all good ideas, storyboarding, multiple paths, links, etc.,
but it all sounds linear to me.

I'll go in a completely differnet direction here--while I agree that you
MUST storyboard out the presentation so you can figure out what the
multiple paths will be--I recommend you take a look at Macromedia's
Authorware <>. It's an
icon-based authoring tool for creating stand-alone CBT. It will make
creating your multiple paths a snap. It includes decision structure,
page tracking and many more powerful fetures.

I'll admit that there is a learning curve for Authorware, but the
developer community is top-notch. The Aware newsgroup is like having 300
developers setting next to you wanting for you to ask questions.

If I had to come up with the type of presentation you've describe I'd
definitely use Aware. But then again, it's the tool I know and love.
