 OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- American Business Information, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABII), has announced that Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) (Houston) is including the 11 Million Businesses Phone Directory -- on CDROM on select Compaq Presario CDS model.
 The Presario, Compaq's best-selling minitower PC, is a broad-use computer designed for home or office. The 11 Million Businesses Phone Directory -- on CDROM, an American Business Information CD-ROM containing more than 11 million businesses in the United States and Canada, arrives pre-installed on CD-ROM-drive-equipped computer models. Like the Presario, this CD-ROM is ideal for use in-home or at work.
 "This single CD-ROM provides a desktop U.S. and Canadian business directory assistance database," said Bill Chasse, vice president of optical products at American Business Information, Inc. "It allows you to find businesses and phone numbers that would be impossible to find any other way -- in seconds; and it provides an opportunity to reduce your telephone directory-assistance charges."
 Chasse added, "Successful companies are zeroing in on where they are most effective -- on what they do best -- without taking the focus away from their primary line of business. Compaq makes computers ... ABI maintains the most comprehensive database of businesses and phone numbers on CD-ROM. The fit was natural."
 In addition to the 11 Million Businesses Phone Directory -- on CDROM, two additional American Business Information CD-ROM titles will be available at substantial savings to Compaq customers. The 9-Digit ZIP Code Directory -- on CDROM, as well as the Health and Medical Industry Directory -- on CDROM will be offered at special prices as part of the joint offering.
