Where Are the Linux FTP Archives?

There are three main archive sites for Linux:

* ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/OS/Linux/ (Finland).
* ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/. Recently renamed to
http://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/ with a nice WWW interface. (US).
* ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu/pub/linux/ (US).

The best place to get the Linux kernel is
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/. Linus Torvalds uploads the
most recent kernel versions to this site.

Of the U.S. distributions, Debian GNU/Linux is available at
ftp://ftp.debian.org/pub/debian/. Red Hat Linux's home site is
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/, and Linux Slackware's is
ftp://ftp.freesoftware.com/.

The Small Linux distribution, which can run in 2 MB of RAM, is located
at http://smalllinux.netpedia.net/.

The contents of these sites is mirrored (copied, usually approximately
daily) by a number of other sites. Please use a site close to you--it
will be faster for you and easier on the network.
