Welcome to <acronym>BLFS</acronym> The Beyond Linux From Scratch book is designed to carry on from where the LFS book leaves off. But unlike the LFS book, it isn't designed to be followed straight through. Reading the part of this chapter should help guide you through the book. Please read most of this part of the book carefully as it explains quite a few of the conventions we use throughout the book. &intro-welcome-acks; &intro-welcome-credits; &intro-welcome-whichsect; &intro-welcome-conventions; &intro-welcome-version; &intro-welcome-changelog; &intro-welcome-mailinglists; &intro-welcome-newsserver; &intro-welcome-askhelp; &intro-welcome-contact;
