New Archie sites.

There are now 6 archie sites that can be used for finding out
about available software on the network. To keep network traffic
to a minimum try to use an ARCHIE site that is in your geographical
locality

	SITE				Node_name
	USA				archie.sura.net
	CANADA				archie.mcgill.ca
	EUROPE				archie.funet.fi
	AUSTRALIA			archie.au
	UK				archie.doc.ic.ac.uk
	ISRAEL				cs.huji.ac.il

These are the Node_names as available from within Xarchie. I have tested
them all with a simple telnet connection i.e. "telnet node_name" and 
login with archie. All function properly but response times differ greatly
according to location, which only emphasizes the fact that there is no place
like home.

Enjoy
