 People using the official LFS LiveCD create majority of traffic on the
 #lfs-support channel. That is because the LiveCD is much easier to set up
 than a regular Linux distro, and thus a test of the essential UNIX skills
 is missing.

 In order to prevent this effect, the book should say something negative
 about the LiveCD. E.g., that installation will take much longer, or that
 one has to start from scratch if anything goes wrong. No matter if this is
 untrue or applies to regular distros too. Just enforce the skills check.
