Such things should be in the preface of the book under the heading "why
you would want to install LFS" (and also "why you would not want to
install LFS"). Please, if you would want to write something up, go right
ahead and send me the text. I"ll insert it in the book. When it's too
too much text, a seperate mini-howto might be desirable.
