This is a good idea: to swap chapters 3 and 4.
Problably most people will burn the source packages onto a CD as
soon as they have downloaded them, so it doesn't matter where they
are temporarily stored. But not everyone does this, and for these
users the most sensible order is to first make the partition, and
then download the packages. It requires less space on the host
system, and avoids a copy operation.
