Build Or Buy A PC CD Index Disc 2, June/July, 2000

    Thanks to all who participated in the success of Phase 1 of Disc 2! Disc 2 did NOT include any of Disc 1 - Too much material @ 647 Megs! We used 700 Meg Discs.

    We had planned to include Disc 1 Updates as well as new materials! This Disc is NOT CD Bootable as Disc 1. Only AutoPlay enabled - Enjoy!

    As requested, for those interested in the full Disc 2 Index, it's on the disc! Available during the Build Or Buy A PC SIG Presentations.
