The online docs are relevant to the SVN version of Forrest. This is not 
a very good situation, especially since we have recently restructured 
Forrest so drastically (i.e. the online docs do not reflect the current 
distribution). Solutions to this were discussed recently.

The distribution does contain relevant docs for the release. What you 
need to do is:


Set the FORREST_HOME variable as per the output from the above command 
(see the last "screenfull" of the output)

"forrest site"

you will now have a local copy of the 0.6 site in the "build/site"
