 These are three of the most popular archive sites, with a few bazillion
 files available for free downloading by ftp. Many of the files are
 shareware and you're expected to send a payment directly to the authors
 if you use them regularly.

 SimTel can be found at: <http://www.simtel.net>

 Garbo can be found at: <http://garbo.uwasa.fi>

 A few words about file names and versions: Many files at the archive
 sites are updated from time to time. I verified every filename in this
 FAQ as of 08 Feb 2002 by ftping to the named sites, or by consulting
 their index files. If you can't find a file given in these articles as
 mumble12.zip, perhaps there's a newer version; try mumble13.zip or
 mumble14.zip, or mumble*.zip if your ftp program supports wildcards
 (most do so). Please let me know of any out-of-date file names.

 This FAQ should show both Garbo and SimTel directory and file names, if
 available, for every file mentioned for downloading. If you see a
 listing for only one of them, it means that the file was not found at
 the other site, or that the other site's catalog shows an old version.

 Also remember that caps and lower case filenames are not interchangeable
 at most archive sites.
