Can someone point me to an ftp location for the bsd networking-2 tape
where I can grab the distribution on one chunk.  I've seen the sources
on uunet and wuarchive but don't know how to easily ftp the entire
source tree.

Thanks!

I think wuarchive's ftp server will send you a .tar.Z file if you try to
get "/whatever/mumble.tar.Z" and it has a "/whatever/mumble" directory.
Against what would pass for my better judgement if I had enough to compare,
I've made a /pub/bsd-sources-2.tar.Z file on gatekeeper.dec.com:~ftp and
you are all welcome to grab it from us if you want to do that.  We normally
just have the unpacked files, which are more popular with most folks since
they like to pick and choose.

It's worth mentioning that if you are a large outfit, you should buy the
tape from CSRG.  Every dollar they can sell helps them stay alive and keep
on producing this stuff.  If you can afford their $850, then it is axiomatic
that the $850 is more important to them than it is to you.  If you can't
afford it, then it's very likely that you will be doing the BSD community
a big favor down the line as you contribute enhancements and fixes to UCB --
so grab the bits via FTP either way, but please consider ordering the tape
if you've got a non-shallow pocket around somewhere.

Cheers,

This can be done on ftp.uu.net also.  The files are compressed already
though and the total size of bsd-sources even compressed is 39 MB.  I
would encourage taring of the 13 sub dirs rather than the whole thing
at once.  It's also a bit useless to try and recompress the tar's.
