-<para>There are many reasons why somebody would want to read this
-book. The principle reason is to install a Linux system straight
-from the source code. A question many people raise is, <quote>why go
-through all the hassle of manually building a Linux system from
-scratch when you can just download and install an existing
-one?</quote> That is a good question and is the impetus for this
-section of the book.</para>
-
-<para>One important reason for LFS's existence is to help people learn
-how a Linux system works from the inside out. Building an LFS system
-helps demonstrate what makes Linux tick, and how things work together
-and depend on each other. One of the best things that this learning
-experience provides is the ability to customize Linux to your own
-tastes and needs.</para>
-
-<para>A key benefit of LFS is that it allows users to have more
-control over the system without relying on someone else's Linux
-implementation.  With LFS, <emphasis>you</emphasis> are in the
-driver's seat and dictate every aspect of the system, such as the
-directory layout and bootscript setup. You also dictate where, why,
-and how programs are installed.</para>
-
-<para>Another benefit of LFS is the ability to create a very compact
-Linux system. When installing a regular distribution, one is often
-forced to install several programs which are probably never used.
-These programs waste precious disk space, or worse, CPU cycles. It is
-not difficult to build an LFS system of less than 100 megabytes (MB),
-which is substantially smaller compared to most existing setups.  Does
-this still sound like a lot of space? A few of us have been working on
-creating a very small embedded LFS system. We successfully built a
-system that was specialized to run the Apache web server with
-approximately 8MB of disk space used. Further stripping could bring
-this down to 5 MB or less.  Try that with a regular distribution!
-This is only one of the many benefits of designing your own Linux
-implementation.</para>
-
-<para>We could compare Linux distributions to a hamburger purchased at
-a fast-food restaurant—you have no idea what might be in what
-you are eating. LFS, on the other hand, does not give you a hamburger.
-Rather, LFS provides the recipe to make the exact hamburger desired.
-This allows users to review the recipe, omit unwanted ingredients, and
-add your own ingredients to enhance the flavor of the burger.
-When you are satisfied with the recipe, move on to preparing it. It
-can be made to exact specifications—broil it, bake it, deep-fry
-it, or barbecue it.</para>
-
-
-
-<para>Another analogy that we can use is that of comparing LFS with a
-finished house. LFS provides the skeletal plan of a house, but it is up
-to you to build it. LFS maintains the freedom to adjust plans
-throughout the process, customizing it to the user's needs and
-preferences.</para>
-
-<para>An additional advantage of a custom built Linux system is
-security. By compiling the entire system from source code, you are
-empowered to audit everything and apply all the security patches
-desired. It is no longer necessary to wait for somebody else to
-compile binary packages that fix a security hole. Unless you
-examine the patch and implement it yourself, you have no guarantee
-that the new binary package was built correctly and adequately fixes
-the problem.</para>
-
-<para>The goal of Linux From Scratch is to build a complete and usable
-foundation-level system. Readers who do not wish to build their own
-Linux system from scratch may not benefit from the information in this
-book. If you only want to know what happens while the computer boots,
-we recommend the <quote>From Power Up To Bash Prompt</quote> HOWTO
-located at <ulink url="http://axiom.anu.edu.au/~okeefe/p2b/"/> or on
-The Linux Documentation Project's (TLDP) website at <ulink
-url="http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/From-PowerUp-To-Bash-Prompt-HOWTO.html"/>.
-The HOWTO builds a system which is similar to that of this book,
-but it focuses strictly on creating a system capable of booting to a
-BASH prompt. Consider your objective. If you wish to build a Linux
-system while learning along the way, then this book is your best
-choice.</para> 
-
-<para>There are too many good reasons to build your own LFS system to
-list them all here. This section is only the tip of the iceberg. As
-you continue in your LFS experience, you will find the power that
-information and knowledge truly bring.</para>

+<title>Foreword</title>
+<?dbhtml filename="foreword.html"?>
+
+<para>My adventures in Linux began in 1998 when I downloaded and
+installed my first distribution. After working with it for awhile, I
+discovered issues I definitely would have liked to see improved upon.
+For example, I didn't like the arrangement of the bootscripts or the way
+programs were configured by default. I tried a number of alternate
+distributions to address these issues, yet each had its pros and cons.
+Finally, I realized that if I wanted full satisfaction from my Linux
+system, I would have to build my own from scratch.</para>
+
+<para>What does this mean? I resolved not to use pre-compiled packages
+of any kind, nor CD-ROMs or boot disks that would install basic
+utilities. I would use my current Linux system to develop my own
+customized system. This <quote>perfect</quote> Linux system would then
+have the strengths of various systems without their associated
+weaknesses. In the beginning, the idea was rather daunting, but I
+remained committed to the idea that a system could be built that would
+conform to my needs and desires rather than to a standard that just
+did not fit what I was looking for.</para>
+
+<para>After sorting through issues such as circular dependencies and
+compile-time errors, I created a custom-built Linux system that was
+fully operational and suitable to individual needs. This process also
+allowed me to create compact and streamlined Linux systems which are
+faster and take up less space than traditional operating systems. I
+called this system a Linux From Scratch system, or an LFS system for
+short.</para>
+
+<para>As I shared my goals and experiences with other members of the
+Linux community, it became apparent that there was sustained interest
+in the ideas set forth in my Linux adventures. Such custom-built LFS
+systems serve not only to meet user specifications and requirements, but
+also serve as an ideal learning opportunity for programmers and system
+administrators to enhance their Linux skills. Out of this broadened
+interest, the Linux From Scratch Project was born.</para>
+
+<para>This <emphasis>Linux From Scratch</emphasis> book provides
+readers with the background and instruction to design and build custom
+Linux systems. This book highlights the Linux from Scratch project and
+the benefits of using this system. Users can dictate all aspects of
+their system, including directory layout, script setup, and security.
+The resulting system will be compiled straight from the source code,
+and the user will be able to specify where, why, and how programs are
+installed. This book allows readers to fully customize Linux systems
+to their own needs and allows users more control over their
+system.</para>
+
+<para>I hope you will have a great time working on your own LFS
+system, and enjoy the numerous benefits of having a system that is
+truly <emphasis>your own</emphasis>.</para>

-<title>Foreword</title>
-<?dbhtml filename="foreword.html"?>
-
-<para>My adventures in Linux began in 1998 when I downloaded and
-installed my first distribution. After working with it for awhile, I
-discovered issues I definitely would have liked to see improved upon.
-For example, I didn't like the arrangement of the bootscripts or the way
-programs were configured by default. I tried a number of alternate
-distributions to address these issues, yet each had its pros and cons.
-Finally, I realized that if I wanted full satisfaction from my Linux
-system, I would have to build my own from scratch.</para>
-
-<para>What does this mean? I resolved not to use pre-compiled packages
-of any kind, nor CD-ROMs or boot disks that would install basic
-utilities. I would use my current Linux system to develop my own
-customized system. This <quote>perfect</quote> Linux system would then
-have the strengths of various systems without their associated
-weaknesses. In the beginning, the idea was rather daunting, but I
-remained committed to the idea that a system could be built that would
-conform to my needs and desires rather than to a standard that just
-did not fit what I was looking for.</para>
-
-<para>After sorting through issues such as circular dependencies and
-compile-time errors, I created a custom-built Linux system that was
-fully operational and suitable to individual needs. This process also
-allowed me to create compact and streamlined Linux systems which are
-faster and take up less space than traditional operating systems. I
-called this system a Linux From Scratch system, or an LFS system for
-short.</para>
-
-<para>As I shared my goals and experiences with other members of the
-Linux community, it became apparent that there was sustained interest
-in the ideas set forth in my Linux adventures. Such custom-built LFS
-systems serve not only to meet user specifications and requirements, but
-also serve as an ideal learning opportunity for programmers and system
-administrators to enhance their Linux skills. Out of this broadened
-interest, the Linux From Scratch Project was born.</para>
-
-<para>This <emphasis>Linux From Scratch</emphasis> book provides
-readers with the background and instruction to design and build custom
-Linux systems. This book highlights the Linux from Scratch project and
-the benefits of using this system. Users can dictate all aspects of
-their system, including directory layout, script setup, and security.
-The resulting system will be compiled straight from the source code,
-and the user will be able to specify where, why, and how programs are
-installed. This book allows readers to fully customize Linux systems
-to their own needs and allows users more control over their
-system.</para>
-
-<para>I hope you will have a great time working on your own LFS
-system, and enjoy the numerous benefits of having a system that is
-truly <emphasis>your own</emphasis>.</para>
