In FrameMaker releases prior to 6, chapter auto-numbering can only be 
done with paragraph-based auto-number formats, in combination with 
the book window and File > Generate/Update. (FrameMaker 6 introduced 
the <$chapnum> book-wide building block, although the older method 
also worked.)

For detailed information on auto-numbering in FrameMaker 5.5, consult 
the online help, user manual, and search the archives of 
frameusers.com, and the Adobe.com FrameMaker User-to-User forums. 
Also, search Google for framemaker tutorials.

You're correct! This suggestion applies to FrameMaker releases 
beginning with 6.
