I think the current way flows more logically. First you get to see what's in 
it, then you get to see what you need to have installed before you can use 
it, then you go install it.

Maybe for the LFS book it's not as much as an issue as it would be for the 
BLFS book because LFS is done in sequence (normally speaking anyways), but a 
book like BLFS might benefit more from this.

However, I still think the format is nice and logical. Albeit you need to 
scroll down more before you get to the 'good stuff'.
