10 FYI documents every new Internet user should read

The FYI (which stands for "For Your Information") series of notes is designed to provide a central repository of information about any topics which relate to the Internet. Topics range from historical memos on "Why it was done this way" to answers to commonly asked operational questions. Some FYIs cater to beginners, while others discuss more advanced topics.

You can get the FYI documents via FTP from ftp.internic.net in the directory /fyi. The file fyi-index.txt contains a current index of the files available there.
