    12 <para>MUCH OF THIS PAGE HAS TO BE RE-WRITTEN TO FIT THE NEW LAYOUT.  THE
    13 OLD TEXT IS STILL IN THE XML SOURCE AND THE NEW TEXT CAN BE BASED ON
    14 IT.</para>
     12<para>Everyone who reads the book will want to read certain sections.  The
     13<xref linkend="introduction"/> part - which you are currently
     14reading - contains generic information.  Especially take note of the
     15information in Important Information (<xref linkend="intro-important"/>), as
     16this contains comments about how to unpack software and various other aspects
     17which apply throughout the book.</para>

    16 <!-- THIS NEEDS REWRITING TO FIT THE NEW LAYOUT
    17 <para>Everyone who reads the book will want to read certain sections.
    18 <xref linkend="part1"/> which you are reading now contains generic
    19 information.  Especially take note of the information
    20 in <xref linkend="chapter02"/> as this chapter contains comments about
    21 how to unpack software and various other aspects which apply
    22 throughout the book.</para>
     19<para>The part on <xref linkend="postlfs"/> is where most people will want
     20to turn next.  This deals with not just configuration but also Security
     21(<xref linkend="postlfs-security"/>), Filesystems (<xref
     22linkend="postlfs-filesystems"/>), Editors (<xref
     23linkend="postlfs-editors"/>) and Shells (<xref linkend="postlfs-shells"/>).
     24Indeed, you may wish to reference certain parts of this chapter (especially
     25the sections on Editors and Filesystems) whilst building your LFS system.</para>
    2326
    24 <para>Most people will want to at least browse through <xref
    25 linkend="part2"/> as this contains information on general post-LFS
    26 configuration issues and information on various libraries which are
    27 needed by many packages.  Note that you don't have to install all of
    28 these libraries to start with, each BLFS install procedure tells you
    29 which packages it depends upon so you can choose the program you want
    30 to install and see what it needs.</para>
     27<para>Following these basic items, most people will want to at least browse
     28through the <xref linkend="general"/> part of the book.  This part contains
     29information on many items which are prerequisites for other sections of the
     30book as well as some items (such as Programming (<xref
     31linkend="general-prog"/>) which are useful in their own right.  Note
     32that you don't have to install all of these libraries and packages found in
     33this part to start with, each BLFS install procedure tells you which packages
     34it depends upon so you can choose the program you want to install and see
     35what it needs.</para>
    3136
    32 <para>Likewise, most people will probably want to look at <xref
    33 linkend="chapter06"/> to deal with connecting to the Internet or your local
    34 LAN.  The basic LFS book deals with setting up a static-ip based
    35 ethernet connection, all other configurations such as DHCP and dial-up
    36 internet connections are dealt with in this part of BLFS.</para>
     37<para>Likewise, most people will probably want to look at the <xref
     38linkend="connect"/> and <xref linkend="basicnet"/> parts.  The first of
     39these deals with connecting to the Internet or your local LAN using a variety
     40of methods such as DHCP (<xref linkend="connect-dhcp"/>) and Dial-Up
     41Connections (<xref linkend="connect-dialup"/>).  The second of these parts
     42deals with items such as Networking Libraries (<xref
     43linkend="basicnet-netlibs"/>) and various basic networking programs and
     44utilities.</para>
    3745
    3846<para>Once you have dealt with these basics, you may wish to configure
    39 network services such as mail.  All of this is dealt with in the
    40 remainder of <xref linkend="part3"/>.  Those wanting to build servers
    41 should find enough information to give them a good starting point here.</para>
     47more advanced network services.  These are dealt with in the <xref
     48linkend="server"/> and <xref linkend="content"/> parts of the book. 
     49Those wanting to build servers should find enough information to give
     50them a good starting point here.  Note that <xref linkend="content"/> also
     51contains information on various database packages.</para>
    4252
    43 <para>Those creating desktop systems will want to look at the next three
    44 parts of the book: <xref linkend="part4"/>, <xref linkend="part5"/> and
    45 <xref linkend="part6"/>.</para>-->
     53<para>The next parts of the book principally deal with desktop systems.
     54We start with a part talking about <xref linkend="x"/>.  This part also
     55deals with some generic X-based libraries (<xref linkend="x-lib"/>).  After
     56this, <xref linkend="kde"/> and <xref linkend="gnome"/> are given their
     57own parts which are followed by one on <xref linkend="xsoft"/>.</para>
     58
     59<para>We then move on to deal with <xref linkend="multimedia"/> packages.
     60Note that many people may want to use the <xref linkend="alsa"/>
     61instructions from this chapter quite near the start of their BLFS journey;
     62they are placed here simply because it is the most logical place for
     63them.</para>
     64
     65<para>The final part of the main BLFS book deals with <xref
     66linkend="pst"/>.  This is useful for most people with desktop systems and
     67even those who are creating mainly server systems will find it useful.</para>
     68
     69<para>Finally, the <xref linkend="appendices"/> contain various pieces of
     70useful information which you may need to use as a reference.</para>
    4671
    4772<para>We hope you enjoy using BLFS and find it useful.</para>
