     graduated in 1995 and which is located in Yolo County.  However, I do

                                ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

My sincerest thanks to Computer Specialist Steve Langford at King Hall
(<mailto:sdlangford@ucdavis.edu >) for his help with my computer needs
during my tenure as a law student.  In addition, the following individuals
helped make the Yolo County USENET FAQ possible:

     *    Robert Schulz, a scholar and a gentleman, who was kind enough to
          share with me his extensive knowledge about the geography,
          history, and demographics of Yolo County.

     *    Russ Hersch, author of FAQs about FAQs, who inspired me to write
          my own FAQs (even though he probably has no idea who I am).

     *    My father, David F. Prenatt (1931-1984), commonly known as Dave
          Prenatt (one of the most brilliant systems analysts of all time),
          and my mother, Shirley Prenatt, who helped both my father and me
          to cope with success and failure.

               The Yolo County, California USENET FAQ Part 1 of 3
            Frequently Asked Questions about Yolo County, California
               (c) Copyright 1995 & 1996 by David F. Prenatt, Jr.


1)  ABOUT THIS FAQ.

1.1)  Who wrote this FAQ and how can I reach him? [Rev]

     This FAQ was written by me, David F. Prenatt, Jr.  Until further
     notice, you can reach me by my e-mail at the Davis Community Network

          NetEsq@dcn.davis.ca.us (<mailto:NetEsq@dcn.davis.ca.us >)

     or by snail-mail (i.e., U.S. Mail) at my Davis P.O. Box:

          Internet Esquire(SM)
          P.O. Box 74632
          Davis, CA 95617-5632

     or on the World Wide Web (<http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/~netesq/ >).

1.2)  What information is contained in this FAQ?

     Anything that I, as the author of this FAQ, decided would be of
     interest to people who are interested in the community of Yolo County,
     California.  See PREFATORY QUESTIONS (Section 0) for more information.

1.3)  How is this FAQ organized?

     This FAQ may be arbitrarily divided into unequal parts where I felt it
     was convenient to do so.  I did this for two reasons.  The first
     reason is that some readers of this FAQ may have specific questions
     and may not want to read the entire FAQ.  If this version of this FAQ
     is comprised of more than one part, the first part will contain the
     complete TABLE OF CONTENTS.  Thus, readers may refer to the TABLE OF
     CONTENTS to find out which part of the FAQ contains the specific
     questions that they want answered.  Second, some computer services and
     applications are unable to handle extremely large computer files.  If
     this version of this FAQ is comprised of more than one part, no one
     part will exceed 32k.  See the TABLE OF CONTENTS in this FAQ for more
     detailed information about how the contents of this version of this
     FAQ are organized.
          This FAQ uses standard Uniform Resource Locator (URL) protocol
     references to accomodate readers with a web browser:

          <ftp://[ftp site][directory][archive] > = file transfer protocol

          <gopher://[gopher address] > = gopher protocol

          <http://[World Wide Web address] > = hypertext transfer protocol

          <mailto:[e-mail account]@[domain] > = SMTP e-mail protocol

          <news:[newsgroup or article reference] >  = USENET protocol

          <telnet:[telnet site] > = IP telnet protocol

     These URL references will act as hyptertext links for those using
     Netscape to read this FAQ on the USENET newsgroups or are reading a
     hypertext version of this FAQ.

1.4)  How can I obtain this FAQ? [Rev]

     directory under the archive name yolo/faq/part* (where * = 1 through
