Release 6 was made available to the public on May 2, 1994.
  
The X Consortium is making R6 available simultaneously on multiple ftp sites
around the world; the Consortium is also offering R6 on CD-ROM, QIC-150 tape,
and 8mm tape (tar format) and is distributing hardcopy documentation.
Information: X Consortium, R6 Sales Center, 1 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA
02142-1301, USA.

You will need about 140Mb of disk space to hold all of the Core distribution.

PLEASE use a site that is close to you in the network.

Note: this list is better available through:
	http://www.x.org/consortium/GettingX11R6.html
	(or via ftp from ftp.x.org as GettingR6, or via "send R6 sales" to
		xstuff@x.org)
