   		<p>The first is to hunt down all the packages in <a href="view/stable/chapter04/packages.html">the book</a>. This is a laborious click-and-point process, not always succesfull since older versions of packages may become less available. In that case the <a href="http://lfs.sourceforge.net/wiki/UpdatedVersions" title="Updated Versions">LFS wiki</a> may have an answer. If it hasn't, try to <a href="http://www.google.com/">google</a> for the package (for example, <a href="http://www.google.com/search?q=bash-2.05a.tar.gz">bash-2.05a.tar.gz</a>). You can also use the sources from your Linux distribution. <a href="http://www.debian.org/">Debian</a> has an excellent <a href="http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages">search page</a> from which you can download the original sources of packages. This method is probably only useful if you really must have all the latest versions (and in that case, check out the <a href="../faq/#why-not-version">FAQ</a>).</p>

  -		<p>The second is a <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html" title="GNU wget webpage">wget</a> script. We provide <a href="wget/">multiple wget scripts<a>, one for each release. Please beware that the <a href="wget/lfs-cvs.wget">CVS wget script</a> is often out of date. Send your updated version to the <a href="http://linuxfromscratch.org/mailman/listinfo/website"> the website mailinglist</a>. To use a wget script, enter <code>wget -i lfs-stable.wget</code>.</p>

   		<p>This is really the preferred distribution channel, since it offloads our servers. At the moment this method requires a bit of patience, since not many people use it yet. If you have some bandwidth to spare, you may wish to get the package via one of the FTP or HTTP mirrors (see below) and add it to your P2P shared directory. <em class="highlight">The more people who download and share it, the faster your download will go.</em> So be kind to the community and don't delete or move the package after you've downloaded it. Keep it in your shared folder for other people. </p>
   	<p>We provide links for the following packages:</p>
