     <para>These tutorials require a number of external libraries in order to function. The specific
-        version of these libraries that the tutorials use are distributed with the tutorials. This
-        section will describe each of the libraries, how to build them, and how to build the
-        tutorials.</para>

+        version of these libraries that the tutorials use are distributed with the tutorials. The
+        tutorial source distribution can be found <link
+            xlink:href="http://bitbucket.org/alfonse/gltut/downloads">here</link>. This section will

         distribution.</para>
     <warning>
         <para>Each tutorial will generally have more than one source file and generate multiple
             executables. Each executable represents a different section of the tutorial, as
             explained in that tutorial's documentation.</para>
+        <para>If you want to build all of the tutorials at once, go to the root directory of the
+            distribution and use Premake on the <filename>premake4.lua</filename> file in that
+            directory. It will put all of the tutorials into one giant project that you can
+            build.</para>
         <para>If you look at any of the tutorial source files, you will not find the
                 <function>main</function> function defined anywhere. This function is defined in
                 <filename>framwork/framework.cpp</filename>; it is shared by every tutorial. It does
             the basic boilerplate work: creating a FreeGLUT window, etc. This allows the tutorial
-            source files to contain OpenGL-specific code.</para>
