     If you're using a UNIX box then it's fairly easy.  With an 
     older newsreader like "rn" you start your post as normal and
     then you copy the file into the post using the "cat" command,
     i.e. <enter> cat <filename> <do>.  If you have an X-window
     machine, or any other graphical user interface machine using
     xrn, or xvnews or something comparable, then all the commands
     you need should be available through buttons or pull down
     menus.  Your system administrator should be able to tell
     what commands to use with your machine.
This either a forgery or a very clever original.
