instructions direct you to press ENTER. Also, where these instructions direct you to
press the F3, F4, F5, F7 or F8 keys, you may need to hold down ESC and press the
corresponding number to get the command accepted. For example, to simulate an F5
you might need to hold down ESC and hit 5 on your keyboard. If you make any
errors during this process, follow the instructions at the bottom of your screen. All
