        If you are new to the Usenet then you will probably find question
5.2.6 the most useful.

------------------------------

        The lists in the following sections do not include the entire
subject line for many of the newsgroup postings to which they refer, since
the postings appear in many parts.  The notation `[etc.]' appears at the
point where the subject lines were truncated to help you use the rest to
search for the postings.
        The Archive-name can be used to find the files at the rtfm.mit.edu
FTP site.  Files are stored in directories corresponding to the newsgroups
they are posted in (pub/usenet-by-group/ and pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/) and
archive-name (pub/usenet-by-group/news.answers/).  Archive-names that end
with `*' are directories that contain the multi-part postings.
        For example, the alt.backrubs archive announcement (which has
Archive-name `backrubs/archive', Subject `[alt.backrubs] FTP archive site'
and is posted to the newsgroups alt.backrubs, alt.answers and news.answers)
is stored in the following files at the rtfm.mit.edu site:
   pub/usenet-by-group/news.answers/backrubs/archive
   pub/usenet-by-group/alt.answers/backrubs/archive
   pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/news/answers/backrubs/archive
   pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/alt/answers/backrubs/archive
   pub/usenet-by-group/alt.backrubs/[alt.backrubs]_FTP_archive_site
   pub/usenet-by-hierarchy/alt/backrubs/[alt.backrubs]_FTP_archive_site
It is a single part posting.
        If you can't use FTP but can send and receive mail, you can use a
mail server to retrieve the files.  To learn about the news.answers mail
server send an e-mail message to <mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu> with the word
help on a line of its own in the body (not the Subject) of the message.
There is some information about other FTP mail servers in the alt.backrubs
archive announcement, and still more information about how to retrieve
networked resources by mail is available from the Internet by E-Mail FAQL
(see question 5.2.6 e).
        Hypertext versions of many of the FAQLs stored at the rtfm.mit.edu
site are available for browsing within the world wide web (WWW) at URLs:
