I'm not at all "tech savvy"- so I'm particularly concerned about NOT getting the most out of Rybka 2.3.2a, because it's not a standalone product and involves a little bit of "doing" to set things up.  My PC runs on Windows Vista Home Basic.  When I first inserted the Rybka CD and had the included files displayed to me, I didnt have any difficulty with copying the apprpriate engine (32-bit) to my hard drive.  (I right-clicked on the file for the engine I needed to copy and moved ny mouse over to "send to" and then a drop-down of options apppeared, and I "sent"/ copied the file to my C drive.)  I was relieved when I had no problem with opening Fritz 11 and "creating a UCI engine."  I cicked on "browse,"  went to my C drive, found the Rybka 2.3.2a file and clicked on it.  Whew!  Unfortunately, the Rybka opening book needs to be "sent"/copied to a specific file path.  It is this: C:documents and settinngs/owner/my documents/chessbase/books.  When I tried the same procedure that I used to copy the engine file to my C drive, I didn't have any option to- or, more accurately, I didn't know how to copy it to that specific location. 
Anyone who can help me with this probably irritatingly basic question...it would be very much appreciated!

You need to copy three files: RybkaII.ctg, RybkaII.ctb and RybkaII.cto, total size 257 MB.

I think "send to" is not intended to copy files... You simply choose copy from the right-click menu (over the file), then you go to the destination where you want to put the book files into, and there you choose paste. It will take a while because of the large file size.

(Do NOT choose "paste link" or what it's called in english, that will not work because it only creates an icon.)

If you intend to keep the initial content (without learning influence) then I  suggest to write-protect the book files on your harddisk, on this occasion. This is available from the properties. Converse, if you intend to use book learning, make sure that the files are not write-protected. Sometimes, files copied from CD are write-protected, initially.

I think a Fritz interface can load a book from any location.
