In your newsreader, find the menu that you use to subscribe to a newsgroup. It should have a "filter box", a space into which you type a keyword such as "garden". Then the display should show all the newsgroups with "garden" in their names.
However, no ISP provides access to all the newgroups available, so if you can't see the one you want listed, that means your ISP just doesn't carry it. In that case, you will have to subscribe to a service such as Giganews, which gives you access to all newsgroups out there - at a price, of course. Or change ISPs.

If you can't link to it, that means your news feed provider doesn't carry that newsgroup. If that's the case, ask kindly and maybe they'll start it just for you!!

Welcome to the large world of Usenet, the net before the internet ;0)
If you have followed the advice given before me and still have no luck, then today's your luck day. You need a news server that carry "binaries", and it's hard to find free ones now'adays. Depending on which news reader that your using ( _not_ a web browser), configuring a news server will differ. If you need help with that, I'm sure one of us around here can help you with that.
Free news servers addresses:
128.230.129.222 128.230.129.223
These have binaries, do not allow posting and they are rather slow but free is free at any speed..!

It appears his news server doesn't carry binary groups. He'll have to get a usenet provider that does.

I have a higher speed than dsl and connected just fine! Maybe Syracuse University doesn't like your connection...? Just kiding... don't know what your problem could be. Try again.

Ask your ISP how to set-up your newsreader.

Sock -- Use above, either click on it or paste it into your browser. It's not as convenient as 'joining' a newsgroup but it will let you view Maddy's crocus pics. HTH
