Okay, page is updated 
(http://test.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/packages.html) and there are 
(minimal) instructions for distributing these package via P2P. I also 
need the MD5sum of the lfs-packages-4.1.tar which is distributed on 
ftp://infogroep.be/pub/linux/lfs/lfs-packages/ and 

Also, I'd like to ask everyone who has eDonkey (xMule, mlDonkey) 
running, to verify that you have the correct tarball (with the MD5sum 
which should be submitted in this thread) and to put it in your shared 
folder. Then mail me the edk:// link so I can add it to the website 
(Unfortunately I don't have the bandwidth required to distribute it).

Alternatively, if you don't have an eDonkey client setup yet, I can 
offer some assistance or installation instructions for installation and 

Currently BitTorrent is not an option, since it requires additional 
programs running on the server. If someone is able to offer BitTorrent 
downloads, don't hesitate to mail website at linuxfromscratch.org and I'll 
gladly add those links.
