ABSTRACT

What is The Desktop Internet Reference?

The Desktop Internet Reference is a hypertext reference to
the Internet.  Its eighteen thousand pages cover the
following topics:

 1) What is the Internet?  How does it work?
 2) How can I get connected to the Internet?
 3) What resources are available?  How can I find things?
 4) How do I use these resources?
 5) Where can I find more about these topics?

This reference is based on Peter Scott's Hytelnet, an
excellent DOS and UNIX reference to the Internet.  Other documents
included are: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Internet
NSF's Internet Resource Guide, Zen and the Art of the Internet,
Introduction to the Internet: A Reading List, Putting your home
PC on the Internet, the Public Dialup Internet Access List,
The Totally Unofficial List of Internet Muds, High Weirdness
on the Internet, ARCHIE user commands, Individual access to the
Internet and a List of all known anonymous FTP sites.  Each of
these documents is included here in its entirity, with all
original copyrights retained.

I feel that The Desktop Internet Reference is special
because it brings together a large number of useful
documents into a single cross-linked, easily accessed form.
I hope it will make the Internet more accessible to
the average computer user.
