+@chapter Where To Go From Here
+
+At this point, you should have successfully installed a
+GNU C/C++ Cross Compilation Tools for RTEMS on your host system
+as well as the RTEMS OS for the target host. You should
+have successfully linked the "hello world" program. You
+may even have downloaded the executable to that target
+and run it. What do you do next?
+
+The answer is that it depends. You may be interested in
+writing an application that uses one of the multiple
+APIs supported by RTEMS. You may need to investigate the
+network or filesystem support in RTEMS. The common
+thread is that you are largely finished with this
+manual and ready to move on to others.
+
+When writing RTEMS applications, you should find the
+following manuals useful because they define the
+calling interface to many of the services provided
+by RTEMS:
+
+@itemize @bullet
+@item @b{RTEMS Applications C User's Guide} describes the
+Classic RTEMS API based on the RTEID specification.
+
+@item @b{RTEMS POSIX API User's Guide} describes the
+RTEMS POSIX API that is based on the POSIX 1003.1b API.
+
+@item @b{RTEMS ITRON 3.0 API User's Guide} describes
+the RTEMS implementation of the ITRON 3.0 API.
+
+@item @b{RTEMS Network Supplement} provides information
+on the network services provided by RTEMS.
+
+@end itemize
+
+In addition, the following manuals from the GNU C/C++ Cross
+Compilation Toolset include information on run-time services
+available.
+
+@itemize @bullet
+@item @b{Cygnus C Support Library} describes the Standard
+C Library functionality provided by Newlib's libc.
+
+@item @b{Cygnus C Math Library} describes the Standard
+C Math Library functionality provided by Newlib's libm.
+
+@end itemize
+
+Finally, the RTEMS FAQ and mailing list archives are available
+at http://www.oarcorp.com.
+
+There is a wealth of documentation available for RTEMS and
+the GNU tools supporting it. If you run into something
+that is not clear or missing, bring it to our attention.
+
+Also, some of the RTEMS documentation is still under
+construction. If you would like to contribute to this
+effort, please contact the RTEMS Team.
