> What I'm going to bring is probably the following:
> Preface
> Ch01 - Introduction
> 	How things are going to be done
> Ch02 - Important information
> 	About $LFS
> 	How to install the software
> Ch04 - Preparing a new partition
> 	All of it most likely
> Chunks from chapter 5, probably nice and long ones like gcc, glibc
> Bison from chapter 6
> Chapter 10
> So I will be re-writing some parts of those chapters to a

> 6:30pm now. 
> Expect me to start editing in an hour or so.
