    17 <para>Within the BLFS instructions, each package has two references for
    18 finding the source files for the package&mdash;a http link and an ftp link.
    19 Every effort has been made to ensure that these links are accurate.
    20 Howerver, the World Wide Web is in continuous flux.  Packages are
    21 moved or updated and the exact URL specified is not always available.</para>

    23 <para>To overcome this problem, the BLFS Team, with the assistance of <ulink
    24 url='http://www.serverbeach.com'>Server Beach</ulink>, has made a http/ftp site
    25 available at <emphasis>anduin.linuxfromscratch.org</emphasis>.  This site
    26 has all the sources of the
    27 exact versions of the packages used in BLFS.  If you can't find the BLFS
    28 package you need, get it there.</para>

    30 <para>We would like to ask a favor, however.  Although this is a public
    31 resource for you to use, we do not want to abuse it.  We have already had one
    32 unthinking individual download over 3 GB of data, including multiple copies of
    33 the same files that are placed at different locations (via symlinks) to make
    34 finding the right package easier.  This person clearly did not know what files
    35 he needed and downloaded everything.  The best place to download files
    36 is the site or sites set up by the source code developer.  Please try
    37 there first.</para>
