The link for CLFS-Bootscripts is broken, no bootscripts exist at Bootscripts are available in git but I'm not sure if they're the right ones.

e2fsprogs link is broken, should be:

IANA/etc link is broken, the address gives a 404 to me, there's a copy of the right version at: I couldn't find this version for download with a quick Google search other than at the address.

Attaching files seems broken, my patch can be found at: There's probably a better way to send this...

It seems like the sourceforge links I said were broken may actually work sometimes, which is really strange (or I'm missing something).

When clicking the link for e2fsprogs from the book found online (git-20110110 version) at: it works and I can download the e2fsprogs package. But if I copy-paste the link into another browser window, I get a 404 error message.

The corrected links above work with both clicking (in my git repo version) or copy-pasting into a new browser window.

Instead of, I changed this to These are the same URLs that are being used in the main book now.

I just updated the download locations.They appear to all work fine on my system via firefox, links, or wget. Please reopen this ticket if you still have an issue.
