The usenet group comp.text.tex is very high-quality.

There's a FAQ: http://www.tex.ac.uk/faq .

The FAQ doesn't answer your question exactly, but it does include a
few entries on footnotes, one of which[1] points towards a package
footmisc, which promises various customisations of footnotes, one of
which might be the one you want.

Searching CTAN[2] for `footnote' might throw up something.

Or you could try hacking away by redefining \@footnotetext from the
LaTeX source....

All the best,
