Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online
Note: Unless your computer is directly connected to the Internet (that is, if you are connected through an intermediary remote host), software for use on your home computer needs to be FTPed to your local host, then downloaded to your PC using Xmodem, Zmodem, Kermit, or some other transfer protocol--a two-step process).
Here's a sample FTP session:
