"The compatibility guide" doesn't appear to exist, as such.

There are guides in subdirectories of this directory:

ToFileName[{$InstallationDirectory, "Documentation", "English",
   "Packages", "Compatibility", "Documentation", "English", "Guides"}]

including one on Numerical Math. I've found no way to get this page  
through Help, even knowing where it is... but you can go there and open  
it. It doesn't mention IntervalRoots, though.
