There are easy ways to do this in bash.

The link may not be accurate, but the ftp site is.

That's one of the most common cause for problems with lfs: the user is 
accustomed to windows 98, and is searching for "configuration utilities". 
Also, the dreaded "i'll reinstall, it'll probably go away" syndrome is caused 
by too much windows usage.

Wanna see for yourself? Hit I built a useable ALFS 
system in 1:15. Not useable for enterprises you say? Imagine pressing the 
enter key, and then all the hundreds of workstations of the enterprise start 
compiling at the same time. Would it create heat? Could you take bets for the 
race? It is definitely enterprise-friendly.
