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.
