Subject: Consturction of 17-sided regular polygon

Hi Everyone,

I have trying to find out the procedure for constructing a regular 17-sided
polygon. I know it was Gauss who discovered the method and is based on the
formula

2^2^k + 1

I have tried to find it from the WWW but I was unable to find anything.

Anyone cares to to show me or recommend any reading materials, books or
online WWW.

Thank you
