	I use and have used GPE since I got my first 770. GPE Contacts
provides for two address's per contact. When creating/editing a
contact, under the locations tab there are spaces following the
home/work number slots. It has worked very well for me.

	Leafpad is now in the main repositories, I believe it
creates .txt files? My favorite because it allows multiple files open.
There is also the antiword/docreader combination that let you view .doc
files and also Abiword. I have no experience with Abiword,  I believe
it allows you to create/edit MS documents.
