To expand a little on Carey's reply, if you use the web interface, you now must
log-on with a .Net Passport. AFAIK, you can still get a Passport by merely signing
up for a Hotmail web mail account, and then use that user name for your Passport
log-in.

However, a much better way to use these groups is through the built-in newsreader in
Outlook Express (OE). Using OE, this group is accessible through this link:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers

How to set up Outlook Express (OE) as a newsreader program to access the Microsoft
forums:
