Doc out of sync with alpha 5? and Forms

Newbie question alert! Beware! (I scanned the archive and read the docs,
I promise)

Following the docs (the tutorial) verbatim that come with alpha 5, I
attempt to go to the Directory section until Admin to create a new
Directory template. (There seems to be no "DirectoryTemplate" mentioned
in the docs, just "Directory."

After entering in the example (CVS) and the class (or any other class)
and press OK on the form, my browser complains that it received an empty
form in return and I cannot create the template.

Am I doing anything wrong? I'm running Jigsaw alpha 5 on Solaris 2.5.1
with JDK 1.1.1. I can't seem to create any new directory templates.

Also, the tutorial for setting the realm mentions that if you specify
the file to save to (admin.db) when creating the realm, you should
specify an absolute path. However, this doesn't work. The filename only
(admin.db) seems to work.

Clicking on numberous help links in the server returns unknown link
messages.

Have I downloaded the alpha4 or alpha3 docs instead of the alpha5 docs?
Where can I get the alpha5 docs?

Other than that, remarkably stable for an alpha release. My tip of the
hat to the authors. :)

Also, can anyone tell me why Jigsaw has switched the Admin window to
<FORMs>, which aren't in HTML 3.2? I use a test HTTP 1.1 aware browser
with Jigsaw. It's strict HTML 3.2, so I had to change the interface
page. Yes, I know the change is trivial. I just thought that Jigsaw was
a testbed for new technologies that will be standardized (PICS,
HTTP/1.1, etc), but I wasn't aware that "proprietary" HTML (i.e. FORMs)
would be used.
