There are various navigation possibilities on the site. At the top,
you'll find the various main projects of the site: LFS, BLFS, ALFS, etc.
The logo functions as the homepage button. At the right, you find the
project-specific navigation and below that the site-wide navigation.
In the project-specific navigation, you'll find "meta"-links, which
describe the project (BLFS news, What is BLFS, Bugzilla). There are
"download" links, which allow you to download various book versions in
various forms; stable, testing, CVS, etc. And finally there are "read"
links, which allow you to read the book online. "Stable and translation"
takes you to a page with links to the stable book and to various
translations of it, which is probably what you want:
The actual book should be at
<http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/>. I say "should be",
because at the moment, there's nothing there due to a failed script,
apparantly. You can still read the HTML version from
Anyway, I know this isn't the most ideal link setup (although at the
time I thought it was). For the CMS-based site, we'll simplify the link
setup to the following sitemap:
Of course, all reasonable suggestions are very welcome!
