1. Introduction...............................................[mp_intro]
------------------------------------------------------------------------


	Hello and welcome to my Expansion Guide for Metroid Prime.  Please 
keep in mind that this guide is specifically for those who are looking 
for the Expansions, not trying to beat that boss that is blocking your 
way or get past that puzzle.  So, if you're looking for something like 
that, go back and click on one of the FAQ/Walkthrough ones.  However, 
if you are looking for how to get those last few Misses and Energy 
Tanks before you fight Metroid Prime, you're in luck!  Well, I suppose
I shouldn't talk much more, so let's get started!
