Thanks a lot.

 With your help, I have now found these pages in the documentation 
(looking for 'linear algebra', and then chosing the 'Linear algebra in 
Mathematica' tutorial). I have however no 'Virtual book' option in the 
Help (I am using version 6.0.1.0), which is a pity. Is there another way 
to access the  book as a whole with version 6 ?
