I apologize for the newbie questions, but I'm trying to get to know
Eclipse UA with the intent to use it to provide help for a standard
(non-Eclipse) application. I have searched a bit, but haven't found the
answers I need.

I have come so far that I have created two help books, they are stored in
eclipse/plugins/mydoc.ops and / respectively. When I then start
the InfoCenter and point my web browser at localhost:8080/help/index.jsp,
I see the books Workbench User Guide, Java development user guide,
Platform Plug-in Developer Guide, JDT Plug-in Developer Guide, Plug-in
Development Environment Guide and then finally my two books MyDoc - Ops
and MyDoc - Tech.

And now for the questions:
- How can I control which books are displayed in the navigation pane? I
want to show my books only and not include the Eclipse specific books.
- How can I control the order of the books in the navigation pane?
- Can I change the initial URL from localhost:8080/help/index.jsp to for
example localhost:8080/mydoc/index.jsp?
- Is it possible to get an automatic redirect from localhost:8080 to the
correct URL? If I go to localhost:8080 now, I get an 404 telling me that
no context is matched.

My configuration is Eclipse 3.4.2 on Windows7, slimmed down for Help
purposes using the procedure in platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_standalone.htm
I suspect I need to work with the files in the plugins directory, so I
have included a complete list of the files at (it's 800+ lines long).

Again sorry for the noob questions, hope you can help.
