    The big fat manual. The first real, physical manual I ever possessed, was for MSDOS 5. I think it was 5.0, don't think there was a 5.1 or higher, but I can't remember. I'm pretty sure the manual is still around here somewhere, buried deep among stuff I haven't used for years.

    I devoured that manual, then went back to discover all the cool stuff I had missed. Dear Wife blew her stack when the computer booted with a multi-config screen that she couldn't decipher. (Basically, a menu, where you chose to boot up for gamine, or general computing, with or without network support, how to configure memory, etc.)
