Cisco IOS Release 12.0 access server and router software functionality and configuration information is documented in a 13-module documentation set. Each module consists of a configuration guide and reference manual. These 13 documentation modules cover the topics listed in Figure 1. There are also four supporting documents, which are described in the section "Supporting Documents."
The following documents support the Cisco IOS software documentation set:
These documents are available both as printed manuals and as electronic documents. The most up-to-date Cisco IOS documentation can be found on the latest CD-ROM and on the Web. The electronic documents contain updates and modifications made after the paper documents were printed.
You can access the electronic documents either on the Cisco Documentation CD-ROM or at Cisco Connection Online (CCO) on the World Wide Web.
