   	<p>The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS-5.0. This major milestone features a new method with strong emphasis on building a correct compilation environment and base libraries independent from the host system. Release 5.0 features the Linux kernel version 2.4.22, the GNU C Library (glibc) 2.3.2, the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) 3.3.1 and a bootloader change from LILO to GRUB, amongst other package upgrades. The book's explanatory texts have also been enhanced, providing an even richer learning experience while you build your own customised, hand-crafted Linux installation.</p>
   	<p>You can <a href="view/stable/">read the book online</a>, or you can <a href="downloads/stable/">download the book</a> to read locally.</p>
   	<p>This marks yet another great leap for Linux From Scratch, and we hope that it will bring the benefits to more users, sysadmins, and developers than ever before.</p>
  +	<p><strong>Update 2003/11/17</strong></p>
  +	<p>For everyone who wants to try LFS-5.0 but has trouble locating the packages, we have assembled a tarball with all packages and patches required by the book. The tarball is <a href="packages.html">available via HTTP and FTP</a>, checked with MD5sums and is signed with <a href="">Gerards' GPG key</a>. </p>
  +	<p>Best of all, there are quite a few people sharing the packages with eDonkey. This initiative was setup to provide a way to share packages while not burdening the mirrors with the hefty bandwidth requirements. Read the <a href="../hints/downloads/files/p2p.txt">P2P hint</a> to setup mldonkey and download the following link: <a href="ed2k://|file|lfs-packages-5.0.tar|130201600|AAEA975A539D470A3EE314F563D8C2B5|/">lfs-packages-5.0.tar</a>.</p>
