                        About Joining Fidonet
    Fidonet membership is not to be taken lightly.  Every member has
    certain responsibilities, set forth in Fidonet Policy 4.  There is
    really only one rule -- that you run an FTS-0001 compliant mailer
    during ZoneMailHour (ZMH) daily.
    Fidonet is open to any and all comers who are able to meet the ZMH
    technical requirement, but is not something you join on the spur of
    the moment without understanding your responsibilities.  You will
    really need to have at least a basic understanding of how Fidonet
    and your FTS-0001 compliant software work.  The best way to gain
    this knowledge is to both participate as a user on an existing Fido-
    BBS, and to set up your own not-yet-linked-to-Fidonet BBS.  Once you
    have a basic understanding of what Fidonet provides and how your
    software does this, you are ready to proceed with joining as an
    official member.
    Don't let this scare you -- virtually nobody knows what's going on
    when they first join.  There will be plenty of time for questions
    and usually tons of help available to you later.  Waiting until you
    have a little bit of understanding will simply ease the process for
    both yourself and your Net Coordinator.  Remember that your NC is
    just a hobbyist too, has plenty of work to do already, and often
    has several other newcomers like yourself needing help at any 
    given time.
    How To Join Fidonet
    Step 1:  Gain a basic understanding of Fidonet and your software.
             Download the POLICY4.ZIP document from a nearby FidoNet BBS.
             Read this thoroughly.  Then read it again.
             Do the same with your software's documentation.  You will
             also need a current copy of the Fidonet Nodelist.
    Step 2:  Set up your BBS.  Make sure it operates correctly, to the
             best of your knowledge.
    Step 3:  Follow, to the letter, the procedure outlined in POLICY4
             for joining Fidonet.  The request *MUST* come in as a
             Netmail message.  This shows the NC that your system is
             indeed capable of exchanging mail -- the basic requirement
             for membership.  Do NOT request a node number in a local
             message on your NC's system, it will only delay the
             process, and may even be simply ignored.
    Step 4:  Be patient.  It may take up to 2 weeks for your request to
             be fully processed and appear in the Nodelist.  Remember
             that your NC may not be able to contact you at all until
             your address becomes official.
