I have looked at what is on UUNET.  Now I have a couple more questions.

Is there anywhere I can FTP a tar of the whole distribution??  The many
subdirectories make it somewhat of a pain trying to make sure you get it

Is there anywhere I can FTP a tar of the NET/2 distribution??  

Because my targets are not INTEL based machines at all, I could use all 
the examples I can lay my hands on.  Especially the VAX.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I dragged the 386BSD sources from
over our incredibly saturated and tiny link to the world yesterday.  Just about
everything seems to be dandy EXCEPT that my copy of
/usr/src/sys.386bsd/sys/signalvar.h is corrupted; there's a big chunk of \0's
sitting about 10 lines before EOF, and of course cc isn't having any of that
:-(.  The problem seems to be in the data; extracting the file on my DS2100
gets the same clobbered result.

Where can I pick up single files via FTP (rather than multi-floppy-image
compressed tarsets)?  I know about agate but I'm reluctant to go in there
from consideration of the relative triviality of my need.

BTW, great gushes of gratitude to William & Lynne and all the fine folks at
CSRG.  This whole thing is the most unbelievably marvellous gift, that I simply
can't get over it.

The Net-2 distribution is all unpacked and file-by-file accessible on in packages/bsd-sources.

The specific file you're looking for is packages/bsd-sources/sys/sys/signalvar.h

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference,
