        I called a local Motorola number (in Denver) and told them I was
using it for a project here at the University.  They sent me (free) a BOX
full of every manual for Motorola literature.  3/4 of it was useless to me,
but the 68000, 68030, 68040 and Programmer's guides were very nice.  So,
look in the local phone book for Motorola, call them up.  They were very
nice and helpful for me.
