Introduction

The following programs are all mostly shareware which means that if you choose to download them and use them for any length of time you should read the license and send in the requested shareware fee. A minimum set up would include WINSOCK, LIGHT.EXE, NETSCAPE, EUDORA, FTP, FREE AGENT and TELNET pretty much in that order of importance. (THE COMMERCIAL VERSION OF NETSCAPE HAS ITS OWN DIALER, YOU DON'T NEED WINSOCK!) Report problems with or additions to this file to homer@lightlink.com.
