The domain appears to be down?!?

I found his web page, cached by Google, at

There is a phone number, 050573456, and an address, Via Venezia Giulia
15 - Pisa,
if somebody in Italy wants to try it.

I found a link to his friend's page, and send that person an email. We'll
see if they have a new email address for him.

Luckily, *this* HOWTO appears to allow modifications. It uses a very
vague, old LDPL (I think?) that says:

<begin copyright>
Unless otherwise stated, Linux HOWTO documents are copyrighted by their
respective authors. Linux HOWTO documents may be reproduced and
distributed in whole or in part, in any medium physical or electronic, as
long as this copyright notice is retained on all copies. Commercial

is, you may not produce a derivative work from a HOWTO and impose
additional restrictions on its distribution. Exceptions to these rules may

In short, we wish to promote dissemination of this information through as

If you have questions, please contact Greg Hankins, the Linux HOWTO
coordinator, at linux-howto@sunsite.unc.edu via email.

As you can see, it doesn't expressly allow modifications, but mentions
derivative works in a way that implies they are allowed.
