    I dont know why people post these long winded guides, such as http://www.slyck.com/ng.php,
    it just scares people (maybe that's the idea ).

    People in my experience just want to know how to download, and maybe know the gist of it.

    Try this, not too long:
    http://www.newzleech.com/?f=1

    Step-by-step Altbinz guide:
    http://usenetfreak.com/usenet-guide-2/

    As you're just beginning I recommend the usenetserver.com 3 day trial. That way if you dislike usenet you only waste $3.

    Better yet, use your ISP's free usenet to play with before you spend a single dollar. And if Slyck's guide is confusing, you are gonna have a hard time with usenet....period.
