6. Belgian Linux resources

6.1. Websites

6.2. HOWTO

The most important collection of Linux information on the net. Please if you encounter erroneous information in one of them, do contact the author. Only that way it will be corrected and we all stand together ;)

6.3. HOWTO translations

As Dutch is less wide-spread, it is the least supported. But work is being done to resolve this ;) (and maybe *you* can help ?!?) French and German translations obviously are already taken care of.

6.3.1. Dutch

A succesfull initiative is making progress, but there's still a lot to do. If you want to help, start translating and send it there. Check http://nl.linux.org/doc/HOWTO/.

6.3.2. French

French translations of HOWTO's can be found at: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/translations/fr/

6.3.3. German

German translations of HOWTO's can be found at: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/translations/de/

6.4. FTP

6.5. Usenet/Newsgroups

6.6. IRC

The fastest medium to get support is IRC, but beware. Because IRC is rather anonymous it's also easy to deceive people.

On IRCnet there's a channel called #linux.be that is closely related to bcol and the Belgian Linux-scene. The channel is still small, but it surely will grow in time. To get help in English, there's only one place #linux.

Also Dalnet has a #linux.be channel.
