Question Marking Menus?

Hi all.
Im working in Maya 4.5 Fundamentals currently. The author mentioned a marking menu that is suppose to come up when I hold down W E or R and hold my LMB down but for some reason they arent coming up. I am getting a completely different Marking menu.

For example: when I hold down W and use my LMB I should see a marking menu that says Translate Y Translate Z Translate X Translate XYZ...... BUT I dont...... the marking menu that comes up for me has Local, Object, World, Normal, Move Options, Keep Spacing, Relative Mode, Snap Move and Update Triad.

All of the marking menus that come up when I hold down the move, scale or rotatehotkeys are not what the book says they should be.

The book had me load some marking menus and some hotkey files in my prefs for Maya... maybe this is whats screwing me up? I dont see how though since they made me load these.

Should I be getting the marking menus I mentioned up above (with the translate Y etc) by default?

Id really appreciate any ideas or help. Ive gone back and reloaded all the files they asked me to and closed and restarted Maya....... even went to Add/Remove Programs and tried to Modify then Repair Maya hoping it would help but, no go.

Thanks In Advance All, Harvezter

I think theres extra bits on the CD that comes in the back of the book that installs these new marking menus.

ok i found it it looks i thinking maybe you put the marking menu files from the cd in the wrong place to test my guess hit ctrl-z and LMB and a marking menu should pop for creating nurbs objects

if you don't re go uver the marking menu tutorial and make shure you did it right. if it dus pop up than sorry i can't help you

well i hope i was of some help
