This is the latest update (Feb 96) to The Absolute Beginners Guide To
Workbench 3.0 Vol 1 (snappy title, huh!) This version has been vastly
improved since the Dec 95 release on the Amiga Format cover disk.
This volume concentrates on the very basics of using your A1200 and
its Workbench. There are many valuable hints, tips and advice for new 
users and each subject covered is in high detail, NO KNOWLEDGE of the 
Amiga is assumed.


VERY IMPORTANT ARCHIVE NOTE:
Originally this archive was Dms'd because the disk has to be named 
ABGTWB3_VOL1 to run correctly, and as this disk is for total beginners 
asking them to start fiddling with disk names would not be a very good 
start. However, Aminet no longer accept DMS archives so I am forced to 
use lha. So, in other words:

Rename the disk this file is de-archived to as:   'ABGTWB3_VOL' 

If you are passing this archive on then please rename the disk for those
beginners out there that might find that task a complex chore, I don't
mean that in a derogatory fashion either, we all have to start somewhere!

Hard disk installable.
