LFS - Linux From Scratch LiveCD

Here's a really nice LiveCD for Linux enthusiasts.

Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with step-by-step instructions for building your own customized Linux system entirely from source.

The LFS LiveCD is geared specifically toward providing a reliable host system for the purpose of building Linux From Scratch. Therefore, it may not be what you would envision as a "perfect" Linux system. It should, however, provide you with a comfortable enough environment so that you can, in turn, build your own "perfect" system.

Documentation for this project is extremely useful, and it is also a great way a person to learn how Linux works from the ground up.

More information about LFS LiveCD is here.
LFS project information is available here.

Fires Tech And Games - Update

Just a quick update...

Sorry the posts were so slim this month.

I was out of town for a week, and was unable to keep the posts flowing.

I have a ton of new post ideas sitting in my account ready to be typed up and posted. This should keep me busy for a while, and therefore there will be a lot of new content on the site.

If you have any ideas that you think would be relevant, or that you would like to see on the site, send an email to firebelcher (at) gmail (dot) com.

Another quick note as well, I have changed my RSS feeds to a full text feed, instead of a partial text feed. The RSS feed is available on the right side.

Thanks for the comments and support, keep it coming!
