    16 <para>Unlike the Linux From Scratch book, <acronym>BLFS</acronym> isn't
    17 designed to be followed in a linear manner.  This is because <acronym>LFS
    18 </acronym> provides instructions on how to create a base system which is
    19 capable of turning into anything from a web server to a multimedia desktop
    20 system.  <acronym>BLFS</acronym> is where we try to guide you in the process of
    21 going from the base system to your intended destination. Choice is very
    22 much involved.</para>

    24 <para>Everyone who reads the book will want to read certain sections.  The
    25 <xref linkend="introduction"/> part&ndash;which you are currently
    26 reading&ndash;contains generic information.  Especially take note of the
    27 information in Important Information (<xref linkend="intro-important"/>), as
    28 this contains comments about how to unpack software and various other aspects
    29 which apply throughout the book.</para>

    31 <para>The part on <xref linkend="postlfs"/> is where most people will want
    32 to turn next.  This deals with not just configuration but also Security
    33 (<xref linkend="postlfs-security"/>), File Systems (<xref
    34 linkend="postlfs-filesystems"/>), Editors (<xref
    35 linkend="postlfs-editors"/>) and Shells (<xref linkend="postlfs-shells"/>).
    36 Indeed, you may wish to reference certain parts of this chapter (especially
    37 the sections on Editors and File Systems) while building your <acronym>LFS
    38 </acronym> system.</para>

    4041<para>Following these basic items, most people will want to at least browse
    41 through the <xref linkend="general"/> part of the book.  This part contains
    42 information on many items which are prerequisites for other sections of the
    43 book as well as some items (such as Programming (<xref linkend="general-prog"/>)
    44 which are useful in their own right.  Note that you don't have to install all
    45 of these libraries and packages found in this part to start with, each
    46 <acronym>BLFS</acronym> install procedure tells you which packages
    47 it depends upon so you can choose the program you want to install and see
    48 what it needs.</para>

    50 <para>Likewise, most people will probably want to look at the <xref
    51 linkend="connect"/> and <xref linkend="basicnet"/> parts.  The first of
    52 these deals with connecting to the Internet or your <acronym>LAN
    53 </acronym> using a variety of methods such as <acronym>DHCP</acronym>
    54 (<xref linkend="connect-dhcp"/>) and Dial-Up Connections (<xref
    55 linkend="connect-dialup"/>).  The second of these parts deals with items
    56 such as Networking Libraries (<xref linkend="basicnet-netlibs"/>) and various
    57 basic networking programs and utilities.</para>

    59 <para>Once you have dealt with these basics, you may wish to configure
    60 more advanced network services.  These are dealt with in the <xref
    61 linkend="server"/> part of the book. 
    62 Those wanting to build servers should find
    63 a good starting point there.  Note that <xref linkend="server"/> also
    64 contains information on various database packages.</para>

    66 <para>The next parts of the book principally deal with desktop systems.  This
    67 portion of the book starts with a part talking about <xref linkend="x"/>.  This
    68 part also deals with some generic X-based libraries (<xref linkend="x-lib"/>).
    69 After this, <xref linkend="kde"/> and <xref linkend="gnome"/> are given their
    70 own parts which are followed by one on <xref linkend="xsoft"/>.</para>

    72 <para>The book then moves on to deal with <xref linkend="multimedia"/> packages.
    73 Note that many people may want to use the <xref linkend="alsa"/>
    74 instructions from this chapter quite near the start of their <acronym>BLFS
    75 </acronym> journey; they are placed here simply because it is the most logical
    76 place for them.</para>

    78 <para>The final part of the main <acronym>BLFS</acronym> book deals with <xref
    79 linkend="pst"/>.  This is useful for most people with desktop systems and
    80 even those who are creating mainly server systems will find it useful.</para>
