Linux Router Project (LRP) n.:
"LRP is intuitively obvious to the casual linux developer...
but with help from http://lrp.c0wz.com, almost anyone can fake it."
--Jeff Newmiller (LRP Mailing List)
CCNA/Linux expert looking for work. Please see http://www.richardonanian.com for more info.
For live LRP discussion, connect your IRC client to irc.openprojects.net and join #lrp. If you don't know what irc is, see mIRC's site or this information page.
Please check the LRP Troubleshooting Request HowTo before joining, like you
would before asking a question on the LRP list.

- LEAF (Linux Embedded Appliance Firewall) is a site where LRP derivatives can work together with eachother, and
where LRP documentation and other contributions can be found.
- lrp.steinkuehler.net (Mirrors: 1 2 3)
is the home of the Eigerstein series; it contains documentation, packages, images, and more.
- Jack Coates's site has quite useful docs and some good packages.
- Todd Horsman's LRP site has a difficult to find odds and ends -- specific disk images, modules, packages..
