Re: Nichols Lab docs

The documentation requirements for FEC certification through WYLE is a 
Technical Data Package which includes:
*User Guide
*Maintenance Manual
*Hardware Specs
*Software Specs

Additional documentation we sent with I-Mark included a MS Test Script 
and Test Plan, Security Management Overview, and FEC Compliance Doc.

If you are only taking software to Nichols I would assume that those 
docs related to hardware would not apply.  I am FedExing the entire set 
of documentation to Larry today.
