Hi Gerard, glad you're still live and kicking.

The discussion hasn't ended yet because the problem isn't fixed yet.
It'll go away nicely after that.

It does not work. The working solution has been identified. In view of
your answer, i will probably do LFS-4.0-sk0 and lfs-bootscripts-1.9-sk0
which will include mtab handling and perhaps PPC support (i'm setting
up my iBook now). If you see any interesting stuff in that when i get
it out, i can feed it to you in nice easy chunks.
