Okay, I made that exact change, here's what I get:
make colorbook
make: *** No rule to make target `..\Materials\00cover.pdf', needed by
`..\Materials\PT3443Color.pdf'.  Stop.

Once I switch it back and make the colorbook, it works, but it is not
handling dates correctly:

touch 00cover.ppt
make colorbook
make: Nothing to be done for `colorbook'.

dir 00cover.ppt
 Volume in drive O is BUSINESS
 Volume Serial Number is 1B26-A0C4

05/05/2004  01:09p             168,448 00cover.ppt

dir ..\Materials\00cover.pdf
 Volume in drive O is BUSINESS
 Volume Serial Number is 1B26-A0C4

05/05/2004  12:59p             239,444 00cover.pdf

00cover.ppt is newer than ..\materials\00cover.pdf, it should have
been rebuilt.
