HOW DO I UPLOAD AND DOWNLOAD FROM THIS SYSTEM? You can use the sx, sb and sz (XMODEM, YMODEM and ZMODEM) for downloading and rx, rb and rz (XMODEM, YMODEM and ZMODEM) for uploading. You can download files by saving them into your home directory from your mail or newsreader, and then running them through whatever conversion programs are necessary to convert them to their original form (as discussed in #10 above). Then you can download them using "sz" (Zmodem - recommended), "sb" (Ymodem batch), "sx" (Xmodem), or "kermit" (Kermit). There are help files on all of this stuff posted regularly to the respective newsgroups. Particularly helpful is the "How to find sources" posting in alt.sources.wanted. Some of the newsgroups that distribute sources and binaries are alt.sources, comp.sources.misc, comp.binaries.ibm.pc, alt.binaries.pictures.misc, and there are many others.
