 My news reader group list has indicated there exists a particular user group
 of interest to me:
            bit.listserv.[subject]      (the subject happens to be e-europe)
 
 How can I 1) sample 2)subscribe  to this group?
 The ordinary procedures for regular Usenet groups do not work.
  [Further, is 1) possible without 2)]?

  I guess I knew that much... What I want to know most is thed
  address for the first e-mail in order to subscribe. There are NO
  further instructions where I got "bit.listserv.e-europe".

 Following this last advice, when I click on  bit.listserv.e-europe a
  box pops up (on my Netscape 4.0 browser):

       This Location (URL) is not recognized:
          news:bit.listserv.e-europe
        Check the Location and try again

Moreover, the same thing happened with a random set of 5 other links
to bit.listserv.(xxxxx) chosen from this URL page. Also, can there really be
a mix of newsgroups and listservers on this uniform format list of links?

I see this isn't quite as quite as straight-forward as I had thought...in the hope
of keeping you interested I've doubled the point value.
