I don't know if I hung onto the MSC 6.0 manuals, but am looking at what
amounts to a sizeable portion of a bookshelf that deals with 7.0.
That's a lot of paper.  Just the "Comprehensive Index and Errors" book
looks to be somewhere around 400-500 pages.

I don't believe that MSC was part of MSDN back then.  At least I don't
recall seeing it on my CD collection, although ISTR that there were
services packs for it there.
