AW: newbie question

thanks for the info. the tutorial is excellent but now i've got to the stage
where i can find the help i need, if it's there. 

for instance, i wish to set the highlighting to come on when i do C-space
and then move down a few lines.

plus i haven't figured out how to get emacs to restore the settings i made
in the last session - there is some help there, but it doesn't help enough

> Show all open buffers:                               C-x C-b
