For my product, I want to have one DocProject with conceptual topics on the general design concepts, and one with the Class documentation - mainly so that I can update and review the former without having to endure the long wait for the Class documentaion :-(
I'm currently building to Help 1.x.
Is it possible to then create a single chm which contains - or links to - both the conceptual and class documenation? Or (thinking about it), just put links in the conceptual chm to the Class chm?

I haven't tried this myself, but apparently Help 1.x supports something called
runtime merging that allows you to link between two different .chm topics:
Linking Between Merged Help Files
Merging Help Files at Run Time
So you may be able to link to an external .chm topic using a see
link, as in the following example.
<see href="ms-its:design.chm::/html/relatedtopic.htm">A related topic</see>
Or for conceptual topics:
<linkText>A related topic</linkText>
Please let me know if that helps.
