Original 5D, some initial questions

Relatively new to the Canon camp with a 5D in hand. I can tell its a relatively simple body but i have some questions nontheless, they might be simple/stupid but please bear with me.

1. What does the blinking AWB icom mean on the top LCD?

2. Can someone please let me know how i can move the center point on the below menu option? By turning the round wheel the 2 lateral points move closer/further away ok, but how do i move the center one? Right now its stuck 1/3 stop below the O and its driving me nuts.

3. According to the below instructions in page 78, when you manually choose the AF point you are supposed to see the (sorry excuse) of the AF diagram on the LCP panel. Where is this shown? I do not see it even though i see the AF choosing through the viewfinder, the top LCD keeps showing the usual data.

Here is a quick link to the instructions


Thanks in advance for all the help
