Ah, I see where you're coming from now!  Chris' CD is independent of the
LFS project (i.e. not directly supported by LFS developers although much
appreciated by many) and hence isn't anything to do with the book either
(I don't think). Its called a "pre" CD simply because it's been released
before the official (online) 4.1 version.

The 4.0 version is the latest stable version available on-line.  The 4.1
printed book is available to order now although I'm not sure how (or if)
it differs from the online 4.0 version in terms of content.

Hopefully this has cleared things up for you a bit, good luck with the
rest of the build!
