Viewing the CD on a Macintosh has always been a pain . The boring introduction,Small and blurry images, etc -
Just recently however , while on the computer I got the same Idea that Mike Tangas has suggested. I organized my files (in my case a 300SE) in one folder on the hard Drive and It makes a world of difference.
You skip the movies and find what you are after in a far more comfortable and direct fashion.
Unfortunately as Mike mentioned, there is no indexing but for the numbers on the pdf files themselves, but one can always figure the numbers out from the main & sub function groups .
All this has enhanced the value of the CD for me quite a bit and I makes using it a snap.
