Hello. I'm a "newbie" here having just purchased a 2100 off eBay. I'll
post more on my buying/learning experiences later.

On the subject...I didn't have a tour installed on my Newt. Found it and
downloaded at :

Not really a 2100 tour but an animated basics tutorial on writing etc. for
OS 2.

Hope this helps!
