I remember books like that for other systems.  We'd spend ages typing in
code, there'd be some obscure typing errors.  We'd print it out, so we
could find the errors quickly (much easier than repeatedly scrolling
through the tiny window of text you see on the screen), pencil in all
the corrections, go back and type them in.  Run it, find it still
errors.  Then we'd ring up the shop and ask for the errata for page 3 of
whichever book, and they'd read it over the phone to us.

You don't know how lucky you are, now, with your precompiled RPMs...
