Tutorial Problem : In serious need of help

I seriously need help here. I found a tutorial on making a tread for like a tank or something for 3ds max. I was following directions just fine until I got to this step...

"Ok, now we need to duplicate this many times in order to make our track. I made 40 copies of it but it's all down to personal taste. You could either copy it many times, placing them as you go (easy to do but can get quite boring), or you could use an array. In this instance make sure you put the correct value in the Incremental -> Move section of the Dialogue box so that each section overlaps with the "cogs" of the last one, and put 40 in the 1D value box at the bottom. This can take some experimenting to get right but worth it in the long run. It should end up looking similar to the image opposite. Click it for a full view.
After you have done that you will need to make it into one object. To do this, click on any one of them and press the "Attach List" button in the modifier tab section, then select all of them from the list that pops up."

I understand all of that except when the "Attach List" button in the modifier tab section is mentioned. I have looked all over 3ds max to find it, and all over the 3ds max index. I have no idea what this is all about. Someone please help me.

Convert a box (any box) to Editable Poly, scroll down until you see Attach and click the little box beside it.
