   Linux FAQ > 3. Network Sources and Resources
Question:  3.6. Where Are the Linux FTP Archives?
Answer:

There are three main archive sites for Linux:

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.

Please send updates and corrections to this list to the Linux FAQ maintainer, rkiesling@mainmatter.com. Not all of these mirror all of the other "source" sites, and some have material not available on the "source" sites.
