Hello Stefan,

Thanks for the reply, but nothing I am doing could be considered as interesting 
as writing notes for a role-playing business.

After leaving the military in the mid 1990's, I spent a lot of time at large oil 
companies, either as a Unix/Solaris admin or a Network/Cisco admin, and 
frequently had to provide technical documentation on new processes, new 
deployments, documenting existing processes or environments.

Every place I went had FrameMaker available either on Sun Solaris, SGI Irix or 
Apple Macintosh, or some combination of the above.

If anyone has a lead on an old copy of FrameMaker 8 for Unix/Solaris, I 
certainly appreciate what ever you can share.
