The LFS server has been touring Canada with Gerard over the last few
months :)  In its current location the available ISP's aren't able
to offer a cheap enough deal to provide the necessary bandwidth needed for
LFS.  Because of this continuous state of flux then some services
(including mirroring) are unavailable at the moment.  You can use 'wget'
to download the latest CVS book off of the web in HTML format and then you
can visit each of the packages respective home pages/official download
locations to get them.

As you've admitted you're a newbie to LFS can I take this opportunity to
point you to http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/ and
http://archives.linuxfromscratch.org in advance - there's a wealth of
knowledge in there should you have any immediate problems.

Hope this helps,
