This link has been broken for a while. The documentation still exists in
Xubuntu 7.10, and if one clicks on the help icon on the panel instead of
in the menus, it works. The top panel help icon link is:

The menu item Applications --> Help  links to:

The menu linked to the same item as the panel icon before. To get to the
desktop guide, you use the first link:

I must be too used to broken, because I just automatically corrected the
link, then had to reinstall 7.10 to find all this again.
