Questions answered by RTFM UNIX
Ever wonder what someone ment when they told you to RTFM? Well the answer isn't what you may think it is; it means they wanted you to go to the RTFM ftp server at MIT! They have a HUGE (as in really really big) archive of documents, records, and faqs of usenet resources, etc. One in particular people here might find useful is the Unix FAQ archive.

And have a look around, you'll find a lot more useful stuff there, too. In fact, I dare you not to get lost!

RTFM does not come from the name of the FTP server. The FTP server is named after the term.

Read The Fu**ing Manual.

It was a joke!

Everyone (I think) knows the origins of RTFM; the author clearly played off that in writing the blurb, and I made it even more blatant by changing the title of the post :-).
