No problem, I can write all the side pages.

No, in progress.

Yea, looking good.  I have a close but differnet idea for the menu:

	* ALFS News
	* What is Automated Linux From Scratch?
	* What is the LSB? (link to LSB pages?)
	* nALFS Roadmap
	* Read:
		* nALFS Users Guide (this is the syntax doc)
		* nALFS Developers Guide (includes the QA Guide, CVS Access, etc. Just 
like the editors guides)
		* LSB Guide (would we link to LSB page here?)
	* Other Implementations
	* Download nALFS:
		* nALFS Documentation (I don't know where, but a chunks version of the 
two books most recent version)
		* Stable
		* Older (or musuem, link the same as what we have for the books)
		* Development (CVS) (a page just like what we have for the books.  You 
have to pull from the repository by hand if you want cvs level code.)
	* LSB implementation (what is this?)

As I mentioned, I can write a lot of the stuff.  That is pretty easy.  I 
will need help on the LSB stuff is we don't link to their pages.  If we 
do link to their pages use the target="_blank" deal in the html to open 
a new window since it goes off site.
