ALFS Profile

Install CVS on your system to get the profile.

To get it, run:
export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous at
cvs login
	<just hit enter when it asks you for a password>
cvs checkout ALFS

It will create an ALFS subdirectory under the current subdirectory.

You'll get a 2483 (59KB) profile.xml file and a syntax.txt file that 
describes the syntax of the tags used. This syntax.txt file was quickly 
written. Although up-to-date and complete it's layout is a mess. That will be 
fixed soon when we convert the syntax file to DocBook SGML

For the non-cvs'ers under us:

That directory won't be updated all the time so if you want to make sure you 
have the up-to-date version use CVS. In the future there might be a CVS http 
interface. But until then...
