Be glad to. Right now, my only available 6.0 is nearing the end of
an LFS glibc install (i18n in glibc now) so it will be about 5-6 hours
before it's available again (6x86-PR-166). Then I'll change the commands
to match and make another partition on it and run chapter 5 with the
above commands. I just checked to see if it's bash supports brace
expansion - it does according to man page. If it fails, I'll also move
bzmore to the front of the list and see if it works (I've a hope it

Typing is not an issue. Trying to keep BILLS as close as possible to the
LFS book is the issue. This was closer than other options, without first
trying swapping places. I wanted to get the install started, so took
the short route. Didn't think of rearranging the components until after

glad to snail-mail to you if you like.

P.S. I almost hate to take the RH off. It seems to be useful for this
sort of stuff. I've got the room - maybe I'll leave it up (or at least
on an HD).
