Know what guys? This is truly ridiculous. I'm spending more time updating the 
entities than I'm actually adding installation instructions. It's currently 6 
PM and I've just spent the last 6 hours working on this. I haven't even 
finished chapter 5 yet (tcl, expect and dejagnu are left to be done still). 
Let alone a test build to make sure these instructions actually are in 
working condition.

I could commit what I have done so far to CVS but I don't really see the 
point. I'd just urge you guys to not even look at it until tomorrow when 
things sort themselves out ;)

So instead of committing this stuff tonight I'll leave it for tomorrow. 
That'll give me a chance to at the very least finish chapter 6 as well and do 
those package updates.

PS: most of these delays are due to the fact that the XML code has become 
fairly unmanagable. Like I said I spend more time fixing entities than 
getting real work done. I think it'll be a good idea after PLFS and package 
upgrades have gone in the book to concentrate on revamping the XML before 
doing anything else. I'm almost tempted to do XML first and do this PLFS 
afterwards if it weren't for the fact that I'm half way through with it
