I assume 1- your looking for these files for your home computer, not for
your host. If you want them on your host [ I betcha already know this,
but forgive me, JIC, ;-) ] contact your sysop; and 2- that you're using an
ibm-type machine [ This answer will cover MACs as well, sort of. ;-) ].
You can go to the newsgroup COMP.BINARIES.IBM.PC and locate the posting
called STARTER KIT [ or some variation thereof ], which you can e-mail to
yourself. It contains instructions you can view with any editor that
permits ASCII editing. Basically, it has you break the file into three
parts and then convert them to .exe files.
If you're actually using something other than an ibm-type, look for a
newsgroup like COMP.BINARIES.xxx where xxx represents the computer type.
There should be a like-named starter kit located there.
Btw, my wife and I will be visiting the -Y- tomorrow for the Utah Home
Education Association convention!
