Thanks for the input, Ken!  We really appreciate it.  I'm going to open
a line of communication with the BLFS-Dev guys, check with them about
what process they would want to follow to have us submit bootscript
changes to them (patches to the book sent to LFS-Dev, or other methods).

To the rest of the community:  Now's your chance!  If you've ever wanted
to see some functionality included in the bootscripts, and feel its
something that would benefit the ENTIRE LFS community, I welcome you to
forward your feedback to Nathan and myself.  My email is
