10<title>After <acronym>LFS</acronym> Configuration Issues</title>
11
12<para>The intention of <acronym>LFS</acronym> is to provide a basic system
13which you can build upon. There are several things, about tidying up the
14system, which many people wonder about once they have done the base install.
15We hope to cover these issues in this chapter.</para>
16
17<para>Most people coming from a Windows background to Linux find the
18concept of text-only configuration files slightly strange. In Linux,
19just about all configuration is done via text files. The majority of
20these files can be found in the <filename>/etc</filename> hierarchy.
21There are often graphical configuration programs available for different
22subsystems but most are simply pretty front ends to the process
23of editing the file. The advantage of text-only configuration is that
24you can edit parameters using your favorite text editor, whether that
25be vim, emacs or anything else.</para>
26
27<para>The first task is making a recovery diskette because it's the most
28critical need. Then the system is configured to ease addition of
29new users, in "Configuring for Adding Users", because this
30can affect the choices you make in the two subsequent topics -
31"The Bash Shell Startup Files" and
32"/etc/vimrc, ~/.vimrc".
33</para>
34
35<para> The remaining topics, "/etc/issue (Customizing your logon)", "/etc/shells",
36"Random number generation", "Man page issues" and "Info page issues" are
37then addressed, in that order. They don't have much interaction with the
38other topics in this chapter.
