My problem is that I do not know how much to post.  You see, I had jumped 
from a big desktop with Windows 98se, a dial-up connection, and Jaws 4.5 to 
a Dell Notebook (laptop) with Windows XP, a broadband connection, and Jaws 
7.0 professional.  So Pratik divided his instructions into parts, knowing 
that part of the problem was that I am new at Windows XP, and it behaves in 
a different way when compared to Windows 98se.  So the settings might be 
different for people with different equipment or programs.

The instructions are definitely fantastic.  It was like having an instructor 
go through every step from the ground up, so to speak.

I will tell you this much about uploading.  When I got to the path field and 
selected the browse function, I got this prompt, which I assume everyone 
gets, asking for the name of the file to upload.  I was starting from the 
beginning of the tabs, where it says, "look in" and choosing something from 
every tab group.  Well, he told me to do a shift-tab twice, which took me to 
the list where you can select "my documents" and press enter.  Then on the 
next tab you can choose your folder, assuming "my documents" is where you 
stored it.  I had 5 folders in there, and you use the up or down arrow keys 
to select the one where the file is stored, which, in my case, was 
"bookshare".  He said to press enter so I would be inside that folder, and 
"cypress.rtf" was the only file in it.  Otherwise you would use the arrow 
keys to get the cursor on the right file, or hit the first letter of the 
filename.  Then press spacebar to select that file.  After that, Iwas to do 
nothing else, just accept the book.  I saw the path which Julie had 
described but which I was never able to see.

If that makes sense I am glad, but I am neither a tech expert nor a 
writer/instructor.  <smile>

The rest involves how to create a new folder, how to move the book to the 
folder, and changing some settings in "folder options" in the tools menu.  I 
am sure it could all be put on Jake's site in different parts, but since I 
did not create and organize the instructions I would not feel free to post 
them.  I would not presume to post something someone else designed, 
organized and wrote.  <smile>

Please understand that it is not that I want to be unhelpful, but rather 
that I do not want to be presumptuous.  <smile>

Dear Sue:I am very interested in the way Cypress Point problem was resolved. 
Maybe it could be useful to put it on Jake Brownwell's site Tips.

John you read my mind somehow
