Check http://www.be.com for a 178 page BeOS User's Guide.

The copyright issue confuses me. The company's copyright statement at the front of
the manual makes me wonder if it's legal to even print it.

"No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retreival system, or
transmitted-in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying,
recording, or otherwise-without the prior..."

Where does printing it off their web site fit???

By placing it on their web page I assume they want people to have access to it and I
don't think anyone would be expected to read it on-line.
