I've had a rash of people asking me for Minix sources, so to help them
out, here is an expanded ftp site list for Minix stuff. This has been
passed on to Glen Overby & hopefully will get into his next Infosheet.

13.1.  File Transfer on the Internet
     If you are on the Internet, you can get files from many places with the
file  transfer  protocol  ("FTP").  When connecting to the host system, use
the user-name "anonymous" and any password.  Most systems will ask for your
"ident"  as a password.  It is considered good etiquette to use either your
login name or mail address when asked.  Once connected, look for a "README" 
file which should give further information about the archive.

     Consult your local documentation on the use of your FTP application 
program (generally called "ftp").  Please be nice to the FTP sites by 
restricting your use to non-business hours.

The following sites provide Anonymous FTP

Reposted-by: e...@msen.com (Edward Vielmetti, MSEN)

I've finally got an Ethernet board so I can devote my old PC as a Minix
anonymous ftp archive. It's called minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au,
address 131.236.20.90. It has nearly EVERY large posting in comp.os.minix
since 1.5. If you can't find it on minnie, it wasn't posted in comp.os.minix!

I expect the usual teething troubles. I'm also taking bets on how long
the 2nd hand hard drive will last. If you want to see some other things
added to the archive, mail me.

Here's the readme...

Welcome to the minnie Minix archive. It contains all the large postings in
comp.os.minix since the release of Minix 1.5.

To make it easier for me to maintain this archive, all files are available
as they were originally posted in comp.os.minix - for multi-part programs
you will have to ftp all the parts.

The first thing you should do is get the `hundred' file in the top directory
which lists all the files in the archive. Then cd into the appropriate
directory to get the files you want. N.B *** For reasons explained below,
this archive is slow. You may want to get the hundred file from
ccadfa.cc.adfa.oz.au in pub/minix, which will probably be quicker.

The archive directories are broken into `posting number' groups. For example,
the directory 12500 holds the large postings which had posting numbers 12500
to 12999.

You may find the archive slow. That's due to several reasons. Firstly, the
archive is in Australia. Secondly, it's running on a 10MHz IBM XT running
KA9Q, and using a 3c501 card to connect it to the local Ethernet. Thirdly,
the hard disk is a very old 10Meg Miniscribe. Your patience is appreciated.
You can speed things up tremendously by ftp-ing binary-wise, but you will
have to strip off all the ^M characters at your end.

The archive may be unavailable during local working hours, 2300 GMT to 0700
GMT. If you can't get through, try again outside these hours.

Comments etc. can be mailed to w...@csadfa.cs.adfa.oz.au - mail won't be
accepted by minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
