A link would do. I'm still considering removing the package descriptions from 
the installation instructions and just keep them in appendix a, with a link 
on every installation instruction page. Every package could look like the 

Installing Bash

Installation of Bash

Package description (this will be a link to the proper page in appendix a)
Known problems (this will be a link to the proper page in appendix d)

Install Bash by running the following commands: 

./configure --enable-static-link --prefix=$LFS/usr \
	--bindir=$LFS/bin --disable-nls --with-curses &&
make &&
make install &&
cd $LFS/bin &&
ln -s bash sh


Or, the links could be put under the installation instructions, which may 
make more sense (one would install, then during the installation s/he could 
read about the descriptions and if the installation fails s/he can use the 
known problems links). I'll try both out and just see which one looks best
