Though I agree with that sentiment I don't think moving it back is the best
idea, especially considering that we now 'su' to the 'lfs' user to create
the directories, something that doesn't really fit in chapter 4 -  chap4
prepares a partition (or more than one) and that's done as root. Chapter 5
is a seperate section where we stop being root. The distinction is clearer
and neater by starting a new chapter.
