The Linux Documentation Project (LDP) provides a variety of free documentation resources including guides, FAQs, HOWTOs, and man-pages to the Linux community.

AUTHORS

The various documents in the LDP archives are maintained by individual authors, and are listed in the beginning of each HOWTO. If you have any questions or inputs to a document we encourage you to contact the authors directly.

"WEB PAGES"

The LDP has its own dedicated web site as do many of the various translations projects which are linked from the main LDP web site at http://www.LinuxDoc.org/ which you may wish to bookmark.
