 		<p>The first is to hunt down all the packages in <a href="view/stable/chapter03/packages.html">the book</a>. This is a laborious click-and-point process, not always successful since older versions of packages may become less available. You can also 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>) or 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. Another package-specific search facility is provided by <a href="http://www.filemirrors.com/">filemirrors.com</a>. 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>

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 is often out of date.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>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>
