"?" and "??"

	I was wondering if there was a way to specify text to appear
when ?? is invoked but not when ? is invoked.  For instance, ?fnc vs
??fnc.  The fnc in question has several options, which I currently
describe in fnc::usage, but its unwieldy to have all of the options
appear, with their descriptions, everytime I call up ?fnc.  I saw
mention of fnc::notes somewhere, but that doesn't seem to have any
effect on ??.  Any ideas?  (I hope I'm making sense.)  :)

	Also, I'm wondering how I can save several commands as a
package.  I'm running Mathematica off of a UNIX machine, and I've
figured out how to save programs to my UNIX account and then call them
back in as needed.  Perhaps that is the same thing, eh?  Anyway, if
someone could shed light on how I can define such a file as a
"package", I'd be interested.
