Knightmare chess rules, anyone?

Hey all, first post here, so go easy. Does anyone have a scan or link to the official rules to Knightmare chess, by Steve Jackson games? I'm introducing the people at my new job to the game, and it would be a lot easier if I still had a copy of the ruleset. Unfortunately, while I have all of the cards, I no longer have a copy of the official rules.

The game is out of official development as of 1998, and while there is a FAQ and errata at the official site (http://www.sjgames.com/knightmare/), the actual rules are not available.

For those of you who play chess and haven't heard of this variant, you owe it to yourself to check it out. It's a whole new layer of strategy and a little extra randomness. One of the things I like about it is it's a variant I can talk non-chess geeks into playing, because it's fun and the cards are kind of an equalizer. A player that's not overly familiar with chess, but is a good strategizer can pick up the game quickly and apply strategies you never would have thought of. (My girlfriend does this all the time).

Here are a couple of links to the boxes if you're interested in a sample or two.

Amazon has the second edition in stock, four new copies themselves and sixteen used/new ones from their vendors. Is this not what you're looking for?

Well, I figured my first post would end up being a blockhead one. Nice to know I'm right about some things. Thanks guys.
