for shipment to the Software Products Library audience.  Software patches can be 
identified with an ECO in the Kit Type column.  Details regarding the software 
patch version are available in each product's cover letter.  The Full-Kit 
Software Patch should be handled as a maintenance release.

The Services Tools CD included with the Software Products Library each time the 
CD updates, contains analysis, diagnosis and remote support software, for

on this CD are for use on systems that have hardware warranty, a service 
contract, or service obligation.  

The Services Tools CD and associated web pages may contain new diagnosis 
software that is applicable to the system and should be reviewed for the most 
recent updates to the diagnosis tools.
