Re: Dselect docs for beginners

Bruce asked me to come up with something to help those new to dselect
when they come to install 1.2 .

I have therefore produced a document and have placed a copy on 
ftp://oak.scotch.wa.edu.au/pub/dselect.beginner.2.gz in the hope that
others will make some constructive suggestions via email.

I expect it to go through version 3,4,5... so get the latest.

That site has narrow bandwidth so if possible avoid the times 04:00 -
06:00 GMT.
