click on books, then on "click here for free distribution version."
I must warn you that it's a 375K HTML file and thus takes a while to load.

I'm afraid I must disagree just a bit. I tried the latest free version of
StarOffice on a K6 200MHz with 32MB of RAM and it wanted about 64MB. I
think it would have been happy if I had 64MB of RAM.
To those who remember my "more RAM = more speed" question: I was going to
throw more RAM in this one instead of my P-133 since SDRAM is cheaper, but
this K6 200 has some kind of hardware problem. Now I am working on
figuring that out before I do the RAM upgrade.
