thanks bobbie

i have set up an eternal-september account and am able to access it via trn

however i see no newsgroup alt.os.linux.mandriva

if i explicitely add alt.os.linux.mandriva to my .newsrc trn says "bogus
newsgroup" and turns it off (by adding an exclamation point after the name).

perhaps i should ask this on the support newsgroup you mention

anyway not urgent so don't bother replying if you're busy. i'm just avoiding
work by playing with this anyway ...
