a case for giving instructions in how to use it. You have to remember that
there are still people that are just now getting to the point where they can
afford a CD-ROM. I, for example, plan to buy my first computer with such a
device with the next paycheck I get. I have used one at University but am yet
to use one at the office, so if I had gone to school before they had CD-ROM's
