1) Click on the notebook front end's Help menu and select "Help".

2) Click the Getting Started/Demos radio button on the Help Browser.

3) Enter the words "Buckyball Construction" in the "Go To" line.

4) Click the Go To button.

If that doesn't bring it up, then you might not have installed the
demo notebooks.  If that is the case, simply copy the file from the
CD.  For Unix and Windows, the directories are: 

[CD-ROM mount point]/Unix/Files/Documentation/English/GettingStarted/Demos

[CD-ROM drive letter]:\PC\Files\Documentation\English\GettingStarted\Demos

and the file name is Buckyball.nb.

There is a similar path on the Macintosh partition, but I don't know
the exact structure of the top level directories.
