Sorry for the delays on this, I got 700 emails behind...

Ya, it was en0.  I thought et was for token?  You're right, the OS
should figure it out for you... oh well, guess IBM was lazy that day.

You'll want the info explorer and man filesets.  If you don't have the
info CD (most people don't -- extra $$), then you'll just get limited
info pages.

The man fileset is bos.*.man.* something?  I'm just guessing... it's
been a while and I currently don't have access to an AIX box.  Other
ideas would be bos.*.doc*.  I'd go through the entire list and install
anything that looks useful.  Can't hurt!
