                   computer off. The saved state can be completely restored later.</p>

-           <dt>LiveCD Version x86-6.2-pre5 Released</dt>
-           <dd><em>Alexander E. Patrakov - 2006/07/17</em>
-	       <p>The LFS LiveCD team is pleased to announce the latest pre-release of the
-                  x86-6.2 LiveCD, x86-6.2-pre5. This LiveCD contains the following changes:
-	       </p>i
-               <p>1) The method of making sure that the CD works on i486 processors has been
-                     changed. The uname hack has been dropped and replaced with the config.site file.
-               </p>
-               <p>2) The LFS book and the LFS packages are updated approximately (but not exactly)
-                     to LFS-6.2-pre1. The XML source of the book is in /usr/share/LFS-BOOK-trunk-XML
-                     (and can be updated with "svn up" command"), the HTML version is in /usr/share/LFS-BOOK-trunk-HTML.
-               </p>
-               <p>3) GAIM has been added. The CD now contains 5 chat clients.</p>
-               <p>4) Proprietary drivers for ATI and NVIDIA video cards were added because there are
-                     cases when they are absolutely needed even for 2D graphics with refresh rate more than 60 Hz.
-               </p>
-               <p>5) The CD now supports suspending to disk. This makes it easy to interrupt and resume
-                     the process of building LFS at any point except the testsuites. Read /root/README for more details.
