    CELNAV pdf file expanded download instructions
    From: George Istok
    Date: 2003 Feb 6, 06:02 -0500

    These instructions will work for Windows 95, 98, 98SE, 2000, or XP.  Read
    the notes before you start.
    1.  Run DOS
            W95, 98, 98SE click on start then programs then MS DOS Prompt
            W2000, XP click on start then programs then accessories then Command
    You will see a black screen with a C prompt and a blinking cursor.
    2.  Run FTP and connect to server
            Type FTP and press enter
    3.  Log in
            When you are asked for a user name, type navigate1707 and press
            When you are asked for a password, type pilot and press enter
    You will see the FTP prompt (FTP>)
    4.      Start download
            Type    recv celnav.pdf and press enter
    The download should begin.  If you are on a dial up connection, the download
    may take up to an hour.  Usually you will see a message when the download is
    5.  Log off
            When the download is completed, type bye and press enter
            When you see the C prompt, tyhpe exit and press enter
    Note:  If you are using AOL, log in to AOL before step one.
              If you can not open the file with Acrobat reader, you may need to
    update Acrobat.  Worst case is that your dial up connection is too noisy for
    a large download.
              If you are using an Apple product and know how to use FTP in the
    Apple operating system, you should have no trouble.
              Sorry, but I can not help much with software other than windows
