  If you're reading this on Usenet, the latest edition of the SGI FAQs
  has just been reposted to comp.sys.sgi.misc, comp.answers and
  news.answers. (Because the comp.sys.sgi.* groups are gatewayed to
  mailing lists which don't deal with crossposts, we only post the SGI
  FAQs to one of them.) If you're reading this somewhere else, the
  other FAQs should be nearby. If they aren't, the introduction
  describes several places where you can find them.
