No need to read HOWTO's right away. There are always INSTALL files with
every package which explain how to install a package the quick way.
That's what LFS did - telling you how to do it the quick way. Now you
have to read the INSTALL file yourself instead of me printing it out for
you in the book. I don't think it's that much more extra work to do.

Definitely yes. Not sure when exactly. I won't start ALFS until LFS-2.4
has been released. I have no idea how long that will take but not too
too long (perhaps a month or two)
