Hope you are not flat on your back!

Anyway, FYI. Completed a cvs 20020914 install today, sent some reports.
This used LFS 3.3 cvs 20020521 as a host. Relatively trouble-free.

Will start another with the latest cvs tomorrow and "zoom in" a bit.

BTW, I had upped my mem from 128 to 256MB on that IBM6x86-II. This run
then required +2.3 hours to do the install as compared to the LFS cvs
20020521 previous install. Prev 6.5, new 8.8441 hours. Sound about right,
considering /static is new, gcc-3.2 and so on?
