I managed to get the CAB files for the DDK Doc and extract the info.
It's not pretty but it will keep you from having to install nt 5.

The CAB extraction tool is at:

The ddk file you want is graphics.exe. It's to big for me to attach so the link is at:

Get the file graphics.exe and execute it. It also is a self-extracting archive.
You should get a graphics.cab and a graphics.inf.

The cab-sdk extracts into a bin and lib directory.
Run bin\cabarc x graphics.cab

This will produce the files:
help_graphics.chm - this is the compiled html file

Then you have to get the HTML help Workshop to view the compiled HTML file.
IE version 5.0 also can view it. I don't know about IE version 4.01.

After installing the HTML help workshop - run it and go to
View --> Compiled File.

Since I've already gone through the million steps to do this, maybe Paul M.
will just let me copy the the compiled html file and help viewer to the UPD archive.

What do you think Paul?
