Well, from a sparse and general description, here is a sparse and general
reply:

I would lean toward printed documentation for this type of informative
information, if that documentation could reach all of its intended
audience (that is, that it would not end up in some sys-admin's locked
cabinet). Printed seems to always work better for informative
information, because the reader can take it wherever is most
appropriate--to a boring meeting, to the beach, etc. Plus, you can put a
lot more into the design of information (sidebars, sections, reading
order) with printed than you can with online documentation.
