On the CD-ROM are various files of the pdf (Adobe Acrobat) and Internet Explorer variety, as well as some movies. The Mac will open the pdf files, and Quicktime will play the movies.

All of the nitty-gritty is contained in the pdf files, so you can see them all on your Mac.

The bad news is that the index doesn't seem to work well with the Mac, so you'll have to make a table containing what each pdf file does. For one given model, this is not so onerous. For a fleet, it would take a while.

Once this is done, access to the files is quick and easy.

Thanks, Neil !

Would it be possible to e-mail me one of the PDF files ? Doesn't have to be any specific one, just one of the smaller files so I can take a look. (alankim@usit.net)

I'm guessing instead of any interactivity just have to pick through the icons and open them.
Are the icons named in a way that makes sense ? Just curious what would be involved in picking through the stuff.
(Also, if there's a brower type interface involved if there might be a workaround using a mac compatible browser...)

This is good news and thanks for passing this along.
