Cisco Documentation Improvement

I was looking up some EIGRP information the other day in the Cisco documentation.  I followed my normal path:

Cisco Documentation -> Cisco IOS Release 12.4 -> Configuration Guides -> Cisco IOS IP Routing Protocols Configuration Guide, Release 12.4

After the now customary redirection, I ended up on a page that looked slightly different than the one that I was used to:

New Documentation Menu

Cisco has now added a menu tree on the left side of the page.  This is a very handy addition as it means that I can get to all of the IP Routing configuration guides from a single page.  No more backing my browser up when I want to move to BGP or RIP commands.

I’ve been seeing this menu tree on a number (but not all) of the documentation pages.  Hopefully they will all be built by the time that I take the lab.

    That for sure will be a nice handy,
    else the cisco documentation is quite infamous for its documentation presentation and some confusing explanation.
