You may also right-click on the above file name and select Save target as... (in IE) or Save link as... (in Netscape) to save it locally.

Note that the User Guide, because it contains a lot of illustrations, is a little less than three megabytes in size.  As a result, it takes a couple of minutes to download, even with a broadband connection on a good day. With a 56k modem, you should expect it to take somewhere between 5 minutes and 10 minutes.
