      Message 2 of 9 , Jan 31, 2008
        A little explanation would have avoided a lot of problems with the
        EXCELLENT training/instructor manual on Ubuntu 7.10.. IT IS A LARGE
        download!!! If you decide to download it, consider that both the
        student and the instructor Training.PDF files are each over 74MB in
        size. YEP....SEVENTY FOUR MEGA BYTES - THAT's ROUGHLY 80,000,000
        BYTES to run down you net connection!!! Given a choice, download the
        instructor manual as it is an overlay on the student version. If you
        have a poor net connection, or horrors a dial-up, then you will have
        to make several attempts to download this manual and it will take A
        LOT OF TIME. I would suggest you use a download manager which allows
        for "resuming" from where the download crashed to prevent having to
        start each time from the beginning. One can also visit a friend with
        a good broadband connection and means to burn you a CD to take home.
        Perhaps the creator can provide an option to download the 11 chapters
        as individual pdf's for those having problems fetching the entire
        manual. The manual is worth it; but, it will take effort to download
        it for most Ubuntu users.
