OK.  I've temporarily placed them in a zip archive at
http://www.empowermentzone.com/net20chm.zip
I'll get charged for this extra space if it is not temporary usage, so
anyone interested, please download the file today.  It is about 200 megs
in size.  It contains 3 zip files:  c.zip, d.zip, and misc.zip.  It
turns out that most of the .hxs file names begin with either the letter
C or D, so I grouped them accordingly when collecting files.  I tried
downloading the net20chm.zip archive myself right now and tested the
integrity of the archive -- it worked.

That's great!
Now the problem is to find a server where they can be uploaded.

If there is no such server available, could you just upload them in an
archive on a server like yousendit?
We would be able to download that archive from there.

Thanks.
