This article is from the Introductory Macintosh FAQ, by Elliotte Rusty Harold elharo@shock.njit.edu with numerous contributions by others.

03 What other information is available? (Introductory Macintosh FAQ)

comp.sys.mac.faq provides short answers to a number of frequently
asked questions appropriate for the comp.sys.mac regions of Usenet.
Five other FAQ lists are worthy of particular note. All are
available for anonymous ftp from rtfm.mit.edu [18.181.0.24] in the
directory pub/usenet/group-name (where "group-name" is the name of
the group in which they're posted) as well as in their respective
newsgroups. You can also access these and other FAQ lists from

<URL:http://www.cs.ruu.nl/cgi-bin/faqwais>

Jon W{tte maintains a public domain FAQ list for
comp.sys.mac.programmer which is posted about every three weeks. See

<URL:ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/macintosh/

The FAQ list for comp.sys.mac.comm answers many frequently asked
questions about networking, UNIX and the Mac, telecommunications,
and foreign file formats. See

<URL:ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/macintosh/comm-faq/>

Norm Walsh has compiled an excellent FAQ for comp.fonts that answers
a lot of questions about the various kinds of fonts and cross-platform
conversion and printing. See

<URL:ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/comp.fonts/>

Finally Jim Jagielski maintains a FAQ for comp.unix.aux covering
Apple's UNIX environment, A/UX. It's posted every 2 to 3 weeks in
comp.unix.aux. See

<URL:ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/comp.unix.aux/>

Much other information is accessible via the World Wide Web by
pointing your favorite browser at The Well Connected Mac, located at

<URL:http://www.macfaq.com/Macintosh.html>

Among other things this site contains hypertext versions of many
of the above FAQ lists, lists of Macintosh FTP and Web sites, a
directory of vendors doing business in the Macintosh market, many
reviews of hardware and software, and much more. If you only
have a dialup UNIX account and can't use a graphical browser, see
if lynx is installed on your system. If it is, use it. Otherwise
if you can telnet, try telneting to www.njit.edu which offers a
publically accessible text-based browser for the Web.
