Was already registered, and got my current PAK text file yesterday (2 day turnaround, not bad). 
Where’s the best set of current instructions to install from CD? I think I have actual Hobbyist CDs.
I want to install on my 3 capable machines:

VaxStation VLC
AlphaStation 300
AlphaServer 2100 4/275

Thanks in advance!
