Using the Book’s CD-ROM

Using the Book’s CD-ROM

The CD-ROM included with this book contains all the practice files you’ll use as you work through the exercises in this book. By using practice files, you won’t waste time creating sample content with which to experiment—instead, you can jump right in and concentrate on learning how to use Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003.

What’s on the CD-ROM?

In addition to the practice files, the CD-ROM contains some exciting resources that will really enhance your ability to get the most out of using this book and FrontPage 2003, including the following:

  • Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 Step by Step in e-book format.

  • Insider’s Guide to Microsoft Office OneNote 2003 in e-book format.

  • Microsoft Office System Quick Reference in e-book format.

  • Introducing the Tablet PC in e-book format.

  • Microsoft Computer Dictionary, Fifth Edition in e-book format.

  • 25 business-oriented templates for use with programs in The Microsoft Office System.

  • 100 pieces of clip art.

Important

1.
Insert the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.

The Step by Step Companion CD End User License Agreement appears. Follow the on-screen directions. It is necessary to accept the terms of the license agreement in order to use the practice files. After you accept the license agreement, a menu screen appears.

2.
Click Install Practice Files.

3.
Click Next on the first screen, and then click Yes to accept the license agreement on the next screen.

4.
If you want to install the practice files to a location other than the default folder (My Documents\Microsoft Press\FrontPage 2003 SBS), click the Browse button, select the new drive and path, and then click OK.

5.
Click Next on the Choose Destination Location screen, click Next on the Select Features screen, and then click Next on the Start Copying Files screen to install the selected practice files.
