I've been feeling a little guilty lately because some (well most actually) of the guides on our <a href="/guides/">Guides Page</a> haven't been updated in 3-4 years. Since I have the day off and it's rather stormy out due to Isabel I'm going to spend the day going through them and updating where needed.

Some of the guides should probably be removed but I've gone through the server logs and there are lots of people still visiting them. Anyhow, since there is over 70 guides on the page, I really need your help. If you've written a guide that's on the page, please please update it.

So far I've updated:

Apache Guide - Fixed links, re-wrote some sections, added additional info for the virtual host section.
Bash Prompt Guide - Fixed the layout so that it actually works now.
Bind Guide - Created a new tarball of zones. updated the examples and version numbers.
BitchX Guide - Cleaned it up a little, added red fonts to commands to match newbies page etc. Removed info about our IRC channel.
Cron Guide - Totally re-wrote it. added new examples and cleaned up old ones.
Eggdrop Bot Setup - Minor updates, updated versions etc.
htaccess Guide - Totally re-wrote it, edited the paths etc.
IPTraf Guide - Minor updates, fixed links, version numbers, added info about
Linux Security Guide - rearranged the topics, added new info and cleaned up the text.
MailMan Setup Guide - Minor updates, re-wrote a few paragraphs, updated version numbers etc.
PPPoE Setup Guide - completely rewritten.
Tripwire Setup Guide - Fixed paths, updated versions, re-wrote a few paragraphs.

Added a new section for external links - Moved unix cd compatability list from /guides/cdr/ to off site link and set up redirect.

I'll be updating this post with my progress over the course of the day. I'm serious though, if there was ever a time where I needed help, it's now. If you have new guides that you've written (Vince this means you), please send them to me and I'll post them.
