   Linux FAQ > 3. Network Sources and Resources
Question:  3.2. Where Is the Documentation?
Answer:

Look in the following places, and the sites that mirror them.



For a list of Linux FTP sites, refer to the answer for: "Where Are the Linux FTP Archives?"

If you don't have access to FTP, try the FTP-by-mail servers: ftpmail@decwrl.dec.com, ftpmail@doc.ic.ac.uk, or: ftp-mailer@informatik.tu-muenchen.de.

A complete list of HOWTO's is available in the file HOWTO-INDEX at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/howtos.html. The mini-HOWTO's are indexed at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/HOWTO-INDEX/mini.html.

A search engine at the Linux FAQ Home Page, http://www.mainmatter.com/, allows you to search LDP HOWTO's, the Linux FAQ, man pages, and Network Administrator's Guide.

In addition, translations are available from ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/translations/ and mirrors worldwide. The HOWTO's and other documentation have been translated into the following languages:

   Chinese (Big5) (zh)   Croatian (hr)    French (fr)
   German (de            Hellenic (el)    Indonesian (id)
   Italian (it)          Japanese (ja)    Korean (ko)
   Polish (pl)           Slovenian (sl)   Spanish (es)
   Swedish (sv)          Turkish (tr)


Additional documents are always in preparation. Please get in touch with the coordinators if you are interested in writing one. Contact and submission information is at http://www.linuxdoc.org/mailinfo.html.

There is also a LDP HOWTO page at http://howto.tucows.org/.

The Guide Series produced by the Linux Documentation Project is available from http://www.linuxdoc.org/. Please read them if you are new to Unix and Linux.

The Linux Mobile Guide is an expanded version of the Linux-Laptop-HOWTO. The URL is: http://home.snafu.de/wehe/howtos.html.

And, of course, a number of people have written documentation independently of the LDP:

Documentation for kernel developers is on-line: http://kernelbook.sourceforge.net/.

To find out about Linux memory management, including performance tuning, see Rik van Riel's Web page at http://humbolt.geo.uu.nl/Linux-MM/.

The Linux Consultants HOWTO has a directory of Linux consultants at http://www.linuxports.com/.

Gary's Encyclopedia lists over 4,000 Linux related links. Its URL is http://members.aa.net/~swear/pedia/index.html.

There is also a FAQ specifically for the Red Hat Linux distribution, at http://www.best.com/~aturner/RedHat-FAQ/faq_index.html.

And the Home Page of this FAQ is http://www.mainmatter.com/.
