Getting started with teradata ...

Hello ...

I've downloaded and configured the 40Gb version of TDE13.

I've not used teradata since V2R5, and the database, all the tools and documentation were pre-configured for me ...

I have several questions:
- are the PDF files included in the VM or are they a separate download
- I'm able to start the instance and login with BTEQ, though logging in takes 45 seconds (repeatably). I've made the change to /etc/hosts for associating my IP address with dbccop1, but am at a loss as to how to speed up the login within the VM.
- I've seen mention that there are samples for TPT included in the product but I can't find them.

Thanks in advance for the help
