+     <h2>Current Development</h2>	   
+     <p>This is the HLFS Book in its current development state. Changes can happen that break

+     </p>
+     <p>Daily rendered <a href="downloads/unstable/">snapshots</a> may be downloaded. Or check

+     </p>
+     -->
+     <h2 id="packages">Packages for HLFS</h2>
+     <p>HLFS has a list of packages which you should download. Please use the versions which are
+	<a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/#why-not-version">listed in the book</a>; these
+	are tested versions which are known to work with each other.  In addition to the packages you
+	will need to download some <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/hlfs/">patches</a>.
+	There are several ways to download the packages.</p>
+	<h3>Hunt and Peck/Freshmeat.net</h3>
+        <p>When a package is not available from the location listed in the book, some other places
+           to try are:</p>
+        <ul>
+           <li>A search for the full package name in <a href="http://www.google.com">google</a> or your 
+           favorite search engine</li>
+           <li><a href="http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages">Debian Package Search Page</a></li>
+           <li><a href="http://www.filemirrors.com/">filemirrors.com</a></li>
+           <li><a href="http://freshmeat.net/">freshmeat.net</a></li>
+           <li>Sources from your linux distro</li>
+        </ul>
+	<h3>Wget Scripts</h3>
+        <p>Another method is a <a href="http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html">wget</a> script.
+           We currently do not have any scripts for HLFS, but if anyone would like to make one, 
+           please send it to the 
+           <a href="http://linuxfromscratch.org/mailman/listinfo/website">website mailing list</a>.
+           To use a wget script, enter:
+        </p>
+        <div class="cmd">
+           <p>wget -i hlfs-unstable.wget</p>
+        </div>
+	<h3>LFS HTTP/FTP Sites</h3>
+        <p>A majority of the packages should be available for download on the LFS HTTP and FTP 
+           mirror sites.  The best place to look would be in the
+           /pub/lfs/lfs-packages/conglomeration directory.  Please check the
+           <a href="/lfs/download.html#ftp">LFS Download</a> page for the links to the servers.</p>
