But think how much you have learned. After all that practice you can
do the rest youself. Here are some clues:


If you use dialup, you will need ppp
ftp://ftp.linuxcare.com.au/pub/ppp/ppp-2.4.0.tar.gz

If you have not done ppp before, read the HOW-TO's
ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO
ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/docs/HOWTO
 
My choice for e-mail transfer was qmail:
home page: http://cr.yp.to/qmail.html
http://cr.yp.to/software/qmail-1.03.tar.gz
procmail and sendmail are also popular

My choice for e-mail client was mutt:
ftp://ftp.guug.de/pub/mutt/mutt-1.2.5i.tar.gz
There are many other choices

If you have not got X running yet, you can still surf
with lynx:
ftp://ftp.magenet.com/pub/lynx/lynx2.8.3rel.1.tar.bz2

At some point you will want to start downloading stuff
from within LFS:
ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/lukemftp/lukemftp-1.5.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.5.3.tar.gz

I have not done a news groups yet
