Not moving very fast!

I do hope not..

The acks are a problem.  I need to sort it out.  What I'd like to do is
to use a table to do it.  I'll have to investigate the XML markup things
for creating tables first though as I've never used them before.

Copyright is VERY important.  We need to sort it out but I don't know
how.  As far as I'm concerned, I give all my copyright (implicitly) to
linuxfromscratch.org when I submit something.  Is this what we want to
go with?

Yeah - that's the problem.  I'm about to *try* and write some text now.

> So I do ask: Is there any interest in the book, especially in writing it?
There certainly is here but time is the problem

Keine probleme.  (Bad German ahoy!)

That's a similar problem to me - I'm a medical student and so lack of
time is definately a problem here as well.  We need more contributors -
spread the word!

I'll be glad to see the hint translated whenever you can.

OK - I'm going to try and get some work done on the book now!
