Hi Mark,

I think you are going to hate me for this... but I'm still going to post 
this... I have done some changes into the outline to sort things out... I 
don't know if this is better or worse... and I add in few things that I 
think a lot of people might want...

I'm just trying to help :) Well if you don't like the new OUTLINE... you 
just take watever things that's new in my OUTLINE and put it into yours :) 
I'm still all excited about this :)

		     Beyond Linux From Scratch
