"Dale Dougherty, publisher of the O'Reilly Network,
interviewed Matt Welsh, one of the founders of the Linux
Documentation Project and an O'Reilly author of Running Linux.
Dale talked to Matt about the project and current work he's doing
with Java under Linux."
"Matt Welsh: I started with Linux back in about 1992 when, much
to the amusement of my friends, I went out and bought a new hard
drive and tried to install what was really the only Linux
distribution that you could call serious at the time, something
called MCC Interim. It came on three or four floppy disks."
"Dougherty: So, how did the Linux Documentation Project
"Welsh: This was basically the result of myself and Lars
Wirzenius and Michael K. Johnson -- I guess Michael's now at Redhat
and I don't know exactly what Lars is doing these days -- getting
together and saying we wanted to produce printed documentation for
Linux, so we wanted to write manuals."
