Gerhard still has the source for this guide, doesn't he?
And what of the others? Here is my quick review of what's available. Where
a document is available in an SGML format, I don't bother to note all the
Linux Security Quick Reference Guide
PDF & PostScript only
Linux Kernel Internals
LDP Author Guide
Securing and Optimizing Linux: Red Hat Edition
(plus server configuration files)
The Linux Network Administrator's Guide, Second Edition
Antares-RAID-sparcLinux HOWTO (NOTE: Probably doesn't belong under Guides.
If we determine it does, it should be renamed)
Rute Users Tutorial and Exposition
PDF, LaTeX, PS, DVI
Linux Administrator's Security Guide
Linux System Administration Made Easy
Linux+Windows HOWTO (NOTE: Why is *this* one in Guides? Or should it just
HTML and PDF only
Linux System Administrators' Guide
LaTeX source, PDF and PS output
Linux Kernel Module Programming Guide (NOTE: Needs to indicate the kernel
version it supports, which is definitely *not* the 2.4 development
LaTeX source, DVI, PDF, and PS output
Installation and Getting Started Guide (NOTE: Very outdated, probably more
misleading than helpful. Should be archived for users of older
LaTeX source, many outputs
The Linux Kernel (NOTE: very outdated, like the Kernel Module Programming
I won't bother going into the unmaintained Guides.
As you can see, only four of our Guides are in SGML source; only *TWO* of
them are in DocBook SGML.
