Installing WAIS Manager

        2)  Execute PKUNZIP.EXE -d WAISMAN3.ZIP.  A subdirectory named
                WAISMAN3 will be created containing the files indicated
                in RELEASE.WRI.  Also, a subdirectory named WAIS_SRC will
                be created and several .src files will be copied there.
        3)  From the Windows Program Manager, select 'File', 'New'.
        4)  Select 'Group Item' and create a group named "WAIS Manager 3.0"
        5)  Again select 'File', 'New'.
        6)  Select 'Program Item' and enter the following information:
                Description:  WAIS Manager 3.0
                Command Line: <path>\WAISMAN3\TBOOK.EXE WAISMAN3.TBK
                Working Dir: <path>\WAISMAN3
                Shortcut: None

                * Set icon to <path>\world.ico"
        7)  Double click on the icon and start WAISing!

More on Winsock
        If you're not using Winsock, you're missing the boat in a big
        way.  Ask your vendor for more info.
        Some vendors are providing the base service on a trial basis.
        Ftp to sunsite.unc.edu and get one of the packages from
        pub/micro/pc-stuff/ms-windows/winsock/packages.
