Huh? No matter which way the reader becomes the lfs user, the startup files
will always execute thus solving that problem. That was one of the criteria
when developing the new method.

these methods should be fine (i.e. what I've tested):

1) login from console
2) su - lfs

If someone accidentally does "su lfs" without the "-" then they haven't
followed the book.
