    i'm a virgin to the newsgroups.. i want to learn.. not for anything illegal, of course..

    i'm at a university campus and my internet is provided through their residence net... if that is anything i should be concerned about.

    anyone willing to help me learn the basics or if not, direct me to a website or something that will?

    1) Download a news client (XNews is a good one).
    2) Find a news server to use... Your university might provide one, or you might have to find a free one.
    3) Connect to the news server and look at whatever groups you want.
