just realized it's only the first 100 pages. the only thing that i think i would really miss is the chapter on Eagle output. looks like it might be a good book to just throw down the cash for anyways.

edit: dammit! it cuts off right in the middle of explaining how to create components in eagle. the part i really wanted to see!

FYI, the image DIYLC puts out for the traces is at 72 dpi. If you use any grapchis program that let's you print in a different dpi, you can change it to 200.25 dpi and it will print exactly the right size.

That is covered in the PDF manual you can download in a step by step tutorial. Not so complicated at all that you would need a book for that.
