Good Source Install Article


I have been looking for a good "Install from source" article that explains what you need to do and what happens when you are compiling and all that good stuff.

Anyways, I while looking around for stuff like this, I found this article

http://linuxpronews.com/2001/1128.html

It is really good, very simple and not to long, makes me feel convident that when I get home I will be able to install from source after a few tries.

Also found this article, have not read it yet, but wanted to post it

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/opsys/linux/g...ue49/lamb.html

If you feel like it, and know some good sites related to this topic, please feel free to post them here, might reduce some install questions from us noobs.
