HELP! I'm new to all of this stuff.

First, don't panic! The Web is an easy place to move around and look at a large amount of information easily.

If you don't have a full Internet connection, you are probably using a browser called Lynx to view this. You can move around FortNet by highlighting the category you want to see and either pressing Enter or the right arrow key on some keyboards.

If you are viewing FortNet with Mosaic, Netscape, or some other graphical browser, use your mouse to click on the appropriate category.

If you don't know where the information you're looking for is located, try the Search function.


Many helpful resources are available both from FortNet and from other sites around the Web. Here is a brief list:
