I don't mind -- go ahead and add anything I've said here.  Or if you
want, I can try to come up with some additional pointers.  Most of it
will be MSDN though, if that matters.  (The issue with MSDN is that its
pages move around fairly often, or at least they have in the past.  This
seems to coincide with a new release of Windows; I remember some 2K Pro
documentation bookmarks that stopped working when XP came out.)

Yep, that makes sense.  :-)
