"I'd like to take this oportunity to announce yet another new Linux distribution. Though we feel that this distribution, called LinuxFromScratch or LFS for short, is different than others and worth mentioning. Let me quickly explain what LFS's goals are."

"LinuxFromScratch is a project which aims to teach the inner workings of Linux, by describing how to compile a fully functional Linux distribution (with the same capabilities as existing Linux distributions such as Debian, SuSe, Slackware, RedHat and others) entirely from source."

"The instructions can be read either on our website or in the LFS book (former LFS-HOWTO under Linux Documentation Project's License) which can be downloaded for free at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org."
