Try FTP from rtfm.mit.edu:
/pub/usenet/news.answers/biology/guide
(I think there were six file belonging to)

This guide is an introduction to internet and its possibilities.
'Hacker slang', 'special graphics' ( :-) ) and access
tools like archie, gopher, veronica, www, wais, ... are described.
Additional information how to get access to more information are
also given.
