I bought bootleg MB manual on CD on eBay for $15 or something. It is
scans of the paper manual converted to pdf files, that's the
technology MB used to create it. It's a backward interface that is
clunky to use, but it has everything in it that the entire set of MB
paper manuals have. I have both the paper and CD. When I do a job
now that I need the manual for I print out the pages from the CD and
use those so if I get them greasy it doesn't matter.
Sometimes it is easier to find something using the paper copies of the
manuals because the interface is clumsy on the CD. But if I had to do
with only one or the other I would opt for the CD.
If you can't find a copy on eBay, send me your address and $15 to my e-
mail, email@example.com , on PayPal and I will send you a copy.
