Default Chapter 4 --> Chapter 5 Continuity??

Ok i'm thoroughly confused -- there seems to be some gaping continuity issues, unless I've missed a whole section somewhere?

So chapter 4, models .. got us to build a StoreManagerController, cool .. got that all to work; although I wasted a little time trying to get my SQL connection string to work, only to find I needed it placed in the debug version of Web.config ..

Read on to chapter 5, and the whole layout of the MvcMusicStore has changed, on page 97, it mentions adding a <form> section 'just below the promotion div' ... err? promotion div? At this point my Index view of my homecontroller still is pretty much the basic 'sample' MVC app ... I don't see a div -- the only <div> in Index.cshtml is <div class="content-wrapper">

I scan forward a page or two and see the image show in figure 5-2 ... The ASP.NET MVC MUSIC STORE ... with Genres down the left, and Home, Sture, Cart, Admin across the top .... how on earth did we arrive at that?
