  <h2>About HLFS</h2>
  <h3>What is HLFS?</h3>
  	<p>Hardened Linux From Scratch (HLFS) is a project that provides you with the steps necessary to build your own customized and hardened Linux system. Based on LFS, this project will incorporate parts of BLFS as well. The main differences between these other projects will be the amount of text dealing with security configuration issues as well as patching many of the packages used for improved security.</p>
  	<p>If you are wondering why you would want an HLFS system, just read any number of articles dealing with hackers and script kiddies breaking into systems and destroying them or stealing from them.</p>
  	<p>If you are wondering why you would want an LFS system or what one is then you don't want to be here for now - you want to head over to the LFS introduction page where all will be explained</p>
  	<p>Currently there is no release of HLFS yet. All work is coordinated on the <a href="">hlfs-dev mailinglist</a>. An initial version can be found at <a href="">the Wiki</a>, although at the moment it is only useful for developers. </p>
