	1) the FAQ is shipped with the "Official" version of AfterStep.
	   A) tarball
		 i) you need sgml2html
		ii) it wasn't Official
	   B) rpm
		 i) complain to the person who made the rpm that they
		    missed the FAQ
		ii) RedHat - yell at them to release documentation to the
		    "easy to use configuration" changes they made
	2) the menu item on the (start)menu called "AfterStepDoc" will
	   take you to the local FAQ.
	3) Andrew Sullivan, who maintains the FAQ, has a method of finding
	   the latest FAQ in his signature.
	4) The 1.4.5 FAQ can be obtained from the outdated web page
	5) The 1.4.6 FAQ (latest) is on the f.a.o/pub   site/dir.

It can't get any easier that this :)
