Note: You can also install your Oracle8i Online Documentation. See "Installing and Viewing the Oracle8i Online Documentation" on page 5-13 for instructions.

Note: You can also access your Oracle8i Online Documentation without using the Autorun window. To do this:

3.Click either INDEX.HTM (to start both your Oracle8i Online Documentation and the Oracle Information Navigator, a Java-based search and navigation applet) or PRODUCTS.HTM (to start your Oracle8i Online Documentation without the Oracle Information Navigator).
