                     24: <li>Start Mozilla. If you're running under Unix, <strong>you must start Mozilla as root</strong> the time you install Archangel. You're installing new software, after all. (The only exception is when Moz was installed under your own UID-- but if this applies to you, you probably already know about it.)</li>

1.8       marnanel   32: <li><b>Then</b> choose "Read GROGGS..." from the Tools menu. You need to be connected to the Internet at this point.</li>
                     33: 
                     34: <li><b>The first time you run Archangel</b>, you'll see the message
                     35: <blockquote>Archangel must now download the RGTP index. The download may take a few minutes, since the index is typically half a megabyte long.</blockquote>
                     36: You must then wait until the whole index is downloaded. This takes a good while, and there's no percent-through update yet :/</li>
                     37: 
                     38: <li><b>Subsequent times</b> you'll just see the message <blockquote>Requesting partial index.</blockquote></li>

                     42: <li>Archangel is a very basic client at present-- for example, it's not yet capable of posting.

                     44: use <a href="/other-clients.html">another client</a>, such as

                     46: 
                     47: <li>One important aspect of RGTP which Archangel doesn't yet capture is "continuations"-- some items listed are continuations of others.</li>
