Within reason, fair use applies.  IANAL, but I figure quoting, say,
maybe even as large a chunk as http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/faq/#winmodem
might be covered by that.

But, anyhow, wouldn't netiquette suggest that, if you were tempted to
quote such a huge block, it'd be better to quote a smaller snippet and
follow that with the URL?
