The CD-ROM can be viewed using a html browser. PDF viewer software is included for 18 operating system platforms on the CD-ROM.
The Go Solo CD-ROM conforms to ISO 9660. ISO 9660 has been used as a least common denominator so that the CD-ROM may be used on the widest range of platforms (UNIX, OS/2, Windows and Macintosh).
As such there are some limitations on the filenames on the CD-ROM: filenames are mono-case, and limited to eight characters with a three character extension. Thus the HTML index files you will find on this CD-ROM are named index.htm .
Information on corrections and updates to Go Solo 2 can be obtained from the URL http://www.opengroup.org/unix/gosolo2/.
The Go Solo CD-ROM has a simple HTML interface. The easiest way to read the CD-ROM is by means of a web browser. The top-level directory contains an HTML document, index.htm that describes the full contents of the disk.
